Sweaters, scarves and mittens may never be the same now that scientists in Uruguay have developed glow-in-the-dark sheep. You heard that right. By splicing in a gene from a phosphorescent jellyfish, nine glow-in-the-dark sheep were born in October 2012 and are reportedly developing normally. (Except for the fact that they’re glowing.) This makes them easier to find on the hillsides for hard-working night-shift shepherds, more entertaining for little kids to count while they’re trying to fall asleep and less likely to get hit crossing the road. The experiments by Uruguay’s Institute of Animal Reproduction that led to these brilliant animals were done in conjunction with the Insitut Pasteur. [Source]
