Korean researchers at Seoul National University have created a special kind of dog that…glows in the dark. Tegon, a female beagle, was genetically modified so she can glow in the dark, which is a pretty odd trait to go for in a dog.

Tegon took four years and approximately $3 million dollars to be made. What benefit a glow-in-the-dark pup will bring the world, I truly do not know but hey, they now exist.
