Scientists make glow in the dark bunnies

Researchers in Istanbul have developed a pair of glow in the dark rabbits.

Turkish scientists injected flourescent protein from jellyfish DNA into a mother rabbit’s embryo in a lab.

The embryo was then put back in the mummy rabbit and when the litter of eight bunnies were born two glowed a vivid green under black light.

The Turkish researchers are already looking ahead to welcome the birth of the country’s first glow in the dark sheep, expected in November.

That is so cute wouldn’t it b cool to have a glow in the dark bunnie of your own as a pet, but poor bunnie maybe it didn’t want to be glow in the dark. They should try it out in a giraffe. Lol I like giraffes I really want to see a glow in the dark giraffe!!!

Uh… What are these animals used for, anyway? A nightlight???? Also, how do the bunnies go to sleep when they glow??? Wouldn’t it be way to light??? I know I can’t get to sleep if it is to dark… And will other bunnies get jelous??? Will the glowing bunnies get bullied???

other people may think this is cool but I’m against it, i find it quite cruel to the kits and their mother. I am a animal lover so you can’t really blame me for complaining about the treatment and the rabbits care, ALL animals deserve to be treated like us (humans) so next time this happens think whether you would want your kids to be treated this way, because the mother rabbit probably feels the same way..
