Green Glowing Rats

We once put up a story about fluorescent fried chicken and the late materials scientist Bill Mallow told us that certain bacteria can cause skin to glow under "black light," which is light that is almost exclusively in the soft near ultraviolet range, given off from a special lamp that provides very little visible light. UFO researcher Dr. Roger Leir says that many abductees with implants have skin that glows under this kind of light. Now scientists have not only managed to breed baby rats from momma mice (by in vitro fertilization), but they also produced an unexpected benefit: the baby rats produced this way glow green!

In LiveScience.com, Charles Q. Choi reports that Japanese biologist Takashi Shinohara tinkered even more with nature, producing male rats with sperm that glowed a fluorescent green. This produced babies that glowed the same way. When the rat embryos were implanted in mice, this didn't change. Researchers have also managed to create green glowing pigs.
