I watched a program about DNA and how scientists are messing with it and this was the outcome!

Due to the fact that there as nothing better on telly the other night I ended up watching a program on BBC4 about DNA and how they are experimenting with it. This included how they has found the individual gene for developing the eye. So they then got the eye gene from a red eyed mouse and injected it into the embryo of a fruit fly. The outcome was terrifying.

This fruit fly has 8 red eyes all over its body some fly shaped eyes, some mouse eyes. IT COULD SEE OUT OF ALL OF THEM.

So with that in mind I painted this. Its 6″x4″ in acrylic and is available for sale or trade. Enjoy!
