It's a GMO Holiday With Glowing Red Kitty, Glowing Green Bunny

Just hold 'em under fluorescent bulbs, and they're like living, purring holiday lights! A Korean team of genetic engineers has created a super race of glowing red kitties. What everyone seems to have forgotten is that several years ago, bio-artist Eduardo Kac had some French engineers build him a glowing green bunny.

Same technique: just add a gene (from jellyfish) for fluorescence to your favorite cuddy creature of choice and presto! Instant cute glowingness. And no, despite what the researchers say, there really isn't any good "medical" or "scientific" reason for doing this. It just looks cool. Photos via Eduardo Kac and AFP.
