China Rings Out Year of Fluorescent Green Pigs

fluorescent green pigA fluorescent green Chinese pig has given birth to two piglets which share their mother's transgenic characteristic after she mated with an ordinary pig.

The mother sow is one of the three fluorescent green pigs successfully bred by a research team in December 2006 after they injected fluorescent green protein into pig embryos.

The mouths, trotters and tongues of the two piglets glow green under ultraviolet light.
