Many things are done in the name of science. There is a need to advance our technology, in order to provide food for a growing world population, or to provide medicine and cures for sickness and disease. From see through animals, to clones, and even one wild and crazy idea, take a look at our list of 10 Animals Created by Science.

10. See Through Frog - Frogs come in nearly every color - from the dull greens, to the vivid yellows and reds of their tropical relatives. Some frogs are even transparent and you can see right through them, which is probably what gave Japanese scientists the idea to create a see through frog by bringing together genes from frogs with unusually pale skin. In these frogs their skin is see through in their early lives. What does this mean?

9. Enviropig – This might be a little bit gross but the Enviropig was genetically engineered to produce up to less than 65% phosphorous through its urine and feces. Environmentally, pigs are very destructive to the land they are raised on.

8. Killer Bees – You might be thinking that killer bees are a natural species. But, what is little known about these creatures is that they were accidently created by scientists who were trying to increase honey production, and instead ended up with a killer bee.

7. Super Cows – The Belgian Supercow is known as somewhat a mutant breed of cattle. It’s originas date back to the 1800’s when Belgian scientists and farmers decided to breed native cattle with Shorthorn cattle.

6. Genpets – OK so this isn’t a real animal created by scientists, but Genpets needs to be in this list and is probably one of the greatest hoaxes in modern history.

5. Sterile Pink Bollworm – The Pink Bollworm is a serious pest when it comes to cotton farming. Not only do the young larvae inflict damage to the cotton plant by their feeding, they chew through the cotton lint to feed on the seeds.

4. GloFish – At first it might not seem like these fish are real, but they are. Glofish are a brand of genetically engineered fluorescent fish.

3. See-Through Goldfish – There are a lot of reasons to genetically engineer creatures such as see through rats, see through frogs, and even see through goldfish.

2. Dolly the Sheep – On July 5th 1996, Dolly the Sheep made biotech history when she became the first animal cloned from adult somatic cells.

1. Pharmaceutical Camels – Many people might not know this but camels milk can be used to produce pharmaceutical proteins used in drugs. And by creating genetically modified camels, it’s a real inexpensive way to produce it.
