world's first genetically modified pet

tentative release : january 5, 2004

'Originally designed by scientists in Singapore to detect pollution, GloFish grow up from Zebra fish eggs injected with a sea anemone gene that codes for red (Zebra fish are normally black and silver). No one knows whether they'll make a splash with consumers, but the GloFish do have a variety of food safety and conservation groups seeing red. The groups want to block the sale of the "Frankenfish" before, as they see it, a wave of genetic modification overflows American aquariums.'

On a serious note, this would be pretty cool, to have those fish in your shoes a la Flyguy in "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka", and going to a psytrance party.

Almost all pets are genetically modified because they have been bred by humans. Domestication is unnatural selection that modifies the genetics of a species, and humans have been doing this for 1000s of years.

Thought, I'd mention that.
