gm Animals The UK
A giant cow, three times the size of ordinary cattle, glow-in-the-dark pigs and goats that produce spider's silk. These aren't characters from a fairy tale. The animals are part of a shocking menagerie of genetically modified animals that will be unveiled by uk's Channel 4 in a show revealing the frightening steps technology has taken. Scientist Olivia Judson and journalist Giles Coren are now travelling to places where the animals are being reared.
