Emieno said:Well, by the way I would like to ask people here this, I think biotechnology has developed so far that sure it can help us create our own animals, for instance frogs, like what if we plan to create frogs with more than 8 legs. They are not 'pure' animals anymore, although I think they can get themselves well fitted with our surroundings soon but how long do you think will they be able to cope with our environment ? Is this just hard to explain or clearly state ?
A species with such mutation as far as I see doesn't cause any harm to the environment and to themselves either. So what do you think ?
Please be straight on what I am trying to ask for, not on what I am trying to imagine, what is going to be any different if it is an application or not an application.pattylou said:Yeah, I think that'd be doable. You can, for example, move imaginal discs from flies around and get ectopic development of whatever structure you like.
But why would you? What sort of application are you imagining? A new pet?

So, your deas on how that could be accomplished are ?
If possible, tell me how you can do tat in lab, what genes do you think should be turned on or off ?
Thanks a lot if you could offer me some help.
[By the way, I don't think all of the people in biology understand about virtual disks of computer, if you can, please mention information related to biology in a correct way. Metaphor or not, your choice, as what you like!]
The 6-legged frog in China is a unique and rare species of frog that has six legs instead of the usual four. It belongs to the family Ranidae and is commonly found in the Sichuan province of China.
The 6-legged frog in China was first discovered in 2012 by a team of Chinese scientists during a field survey in the Sichuan province. They noticed a group of frogs with six legs, which led to further investigation and confirmation of a new species.
The 6-legged frog in China is fascinating because it is the only known species of frog with six legs. It is also believed to be the result of a genetic mutation, making it a rare and unique find in the world of amphibians.
Currently, the 6-legged frog in China is not considered an endangered species. However, its population and habitat are constantly threatened by human activities such as urbanization and pollution.
Yes, there are conservation efforts in place for the 6-legged frog in China. The Sichuan Province has designated the area where it was discovered as a protected zone to ensure its habitat is preserved. Additionally, studies and research are being conducted to better understand and protect this unique species.
