Researchers in Taiwan have bred fluorescent green pigs. The best quote from the article has to be:
"There are partially fluorescent green pigs elsewhere, but ours are the only ones in the world that are green from inside out. Even their hearts and internal organs are green," Wu said on Thursday.
The BBC even has pictures.

They say that having flourescent green pigs will help them to track the growth and change in tissue during development. But aside from being able to watch embryos grow and say, "Oh look, there's more green stuff poking out over there!" (which is essentially the same thing as being able to say, "Oh look, there's more pink stuff poking out over there!"), how will protein-based green dye help them to see how the tissue grows if ALL the tissue is green?

Little Ann Briggs has lost her pigs
but dares not to forsake them.
If they'd been coloured green,
they might have been seen,
Instead of a waste of bacon.

To cheer up patients convalescent,
Dr. prescribed some victuals florescent.
But his charges revolted:
No good deed's less rewarded
Than making fresh ham look putrescent.

A man with a chicken once teased,
"I've got my green pork; I'm appeased.
But you bloody hen,
I'll tell you again,
If you would just lay green eggs, I'd be pleased!"

Climatologists and weather forecasters
Try to warn us of natural disasters,
But more threatening- I fear-
Is the bio-engineer.
"I welcome our iridescent swine masters"

Now it's just for green eggs that we pine
It's a new thing in science porcine
It's not that we're mean
We've just made them green
Wow, now look what we've done to our swine.

Thanks to reveilles for her help.

A pig started an unlikely romance;
"Forbidden fruit" in the modern parlance.
Over dim candlelight
And background Barry White
He danced the Jellyfish dance.
