The Neon Cats

GeoTagged, [N42.25462, E71.09028]

Yes, I know. It sounds like a cheesy name for a jazz band, but this is some really weird stuff!!! South Korean Scientists at Gyeongsang National University last year
came out with kittens with modified genes, so that their skin would glow under Ultraviolet rays. "The ability to manipulate the flourescent protein and use this to clone cats opens new horizons for artificially creating human illness linked to generic causes," the Ministry of Science and Technology said. Out of the four kittens they produced, 3 survived. Well, it seems that people are making their own cryptids, these days. Go figure.
