Taiwan breeds green-glowing pigs

By Chris Hogg <-
BBC News, Hong Kong

When lit up in the dark, the pigs glow green
Scientists in Taiwan say they have bred three pigs that glow in the dark.

They claim that while other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, theirs are the only pigs in the world which are green through and through....

...They are the only ones that are green from the inside out. Even their heart and internal organs are green, they say....

Wait, "When lit up in the dark"? If they're lit up, by definition they are not in the dark.

They glow under a black light.

Oh my God.

I want NEED some to release on to my property.

I wonder if they breed with the wild hogs I have now, if their offspring would glow?

They make much easier targets at night when they are glowing.


Yeah, I'm a jackass.....what can I say.

If that happens I'll seriously consider moving to Texas. Night hunting is illegal in Cali, except in special situations like the annual Bunny Slaughter on Santa Catalina Island.

They have had green eggs for centuries now. This just finishes it out.
