In collaboration with a team of Turkish researchers, scientists at the University of Hawaii-Manoa have successfully bred the first litter of neon rabbits. The litter was conceived by injecting luminescent proteins from a jellyfish into rabbit embryos. The outcome of the experiment was two small two bunnies that hop, twitch their noses and radiate a bright green under florescent light.

These rabbits will not live long, healthy lives due to this genetic engineering.

Genetic engineering on animals for human gain is a travesty and must stop. Please sign, share, and support this petition to put an end to genetic testing on rabbits which makes them have a fluorescent glow like appearance.
