Well, it glows under ultraviolet light, FTA “She and four other beagles all produce a fluorescent protein that glows red under ultraviolet light.”

They mixed the beagle with a sea anemone. Read the article its pretty interesting. The cool part is that they used a retrovirus! ZOMG! StarGate Atlantis FTW! (Season two by the way.)
