Seoul National University researchers genetically engineered a dog that glows when placed under ultraviolet light. The glow in the dark beagle puppy, named Tagon, is also a clone. The dog's ability to glow can be triggered on and off by adding a drug (a doxycycline antibiotic) to its food. The scientists hope the cloning technique will lead to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's cures. The same researchers created glowing cats in 2007. Take a look:
