  • While I am not fond of animal testing, we would not be at where we are at today. The diseases that have been cured through animal testing and such. I also love the idea and the wide open possibilities of that break through for everyone who thought they would never walk again!

  • Fantastic! Now if they could just hurry up w/ the stem cell research or the bionic eye development so my son can have vision in his left eye, I'll be a VERY happy mama!

  • I have never seen a rat walk on its hind legs. I understand what they are doing, but it just looks strange to see an 'up right' rat.
