So maybe that is a bit inaccurate but this glow in the dark mouse is real and was created to aid in cancer research. It’s called a florescent nude transgenic mouse. We’re embarrassed for him.

    This technology will surely be a hit with Richard Gere.

    I kill these mice routinely. It is very interesting actually because when you open up their abdominal cavity, the intestines and surrounding fascia appear green even under normal light. There is now a fluorescent red variety as well, mating the two would surely be a hit around the holidays!
