See Thru Frogs!

Those crazy Japanese. Is there nothing their superior technology cannot do?

Sumida said his team, which announced the research last week at an academic conference, had created the first transparent four-legged creature, although some small fish are also see-through.

The researchers produced the creature from rare mutants of the Japanese brown frog, or Rena japonica, whose backs are usually ochre or brown.

Sure we laughed at their mutant Godzilla monsters, but this stuff is getting serious. And seriously cool.

  1. That’s pretty cool, but for my money the glow in the dark rabbits make better pets.
