Plus, they look pretty badass… in the most ADORABLE WAY POSSIBLE!

Ten glow-in-the-dark piglets have been born this year in China, and it wasn't by accident — they are the result of an experiment at the South China Agriculture University! They've been tweaked by injecting a fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA into the pig embryos.

Sounds… fun?

The good news is that the animals were NOT hurt by the process and besides the glowin' they're normal-ass pigs!

So what's the benefits of this?? To show that foreign genetic material can be incorporated from one animal to an entirely different animal! This means CHEAPER DRUGS FOR HUMANS!

Plus it's just cool! Ha!

    lol this technology has been around for years. How do you think they genetically engineer anything? Design any GMOs? They do it by incorporating foreign DNA into another species. How do they mass produce insulin? They inject the human insulin gene into bacteria. They've been doing it for a while now, it's nothing new.

    Mario, you should have this injected into your dick. That way your boyfriend could find it.
