"TAIPEI, Taiwan - Taiwan, home to the worlds first transgenic glowing fish, has successfully bred fluorescent green pigs that researchers hope will boost the islands stem cell research, a professor said on Thursday.

By injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs, a research team at the islands leading National Taiwan University managed to breed three male transgenic pigs, said professor Wu Shinn-Chih of the universitys Institute and Department of Animal Science and Technology.

There are partially fluorescent green pigs elsewhere, but ours are the only ones in the world that are green from inside out. Even their hearts and internal organs are green, Wu said on Thursday."

I dont really know what to say about this, but I didnt see it posted yet.
