Scientists from South China Agricultural University created 10 little piglets, which glow in the dark. The team of scientists used a technique, which was previously developed for creating fluorescent bunnies by the Turkish, who are currently working on creating glowing sheep. So how does the trick work? The scientists have injected fluorescent protein from a jellyfish DNA into unborn pig embryos. After the piglets were born, they were able to glow in the dark after being lit with black fluorescent light. According to the scientists, the jellyfish DNA won’t affect the piglets in any way, including altering their natural lifespan.

The piglets aren’t meant for Christmas decoration. The group of scientists is hoping to find a way to produce blood-clotting enzymes in order to cure those who suffer from hemophilia. Apparently, it would be easier than building a brand new factory and losing millions of dollars.
