The Glowing Bunny
from the artwork? dept
ABC News tonight had a report about Alba, the glowing bunny. It seems an artist, Eduardo Kac, had jellyfish DNA mixed with a rabbit, to create this bunny whose fur and eyes glow under a blacklight. Apparently, it was created in order to bring attention to some of the debates on genetic engineering. Of course, the lab in France that created the bunny won’t release it because they’re afraid it might escape into the wild and breed like… well… rabbits. They’re not sure what sort of effect that might have on the environment.
