Pigs that glow in the dark: In 2006 some Taiwan scientists used genetic material from a jelly fish and managed to implant it into pig embryos. The result was pigs that glow bright green in the dark. The pig’s entire body (including its internal organs) glow green. In the daylight, these pigs only have a slight tinge of green on their skin, snout and teeth.
