These sheep are not dyed. They are born with a colorful coat.
Scientists in Urumqi, northwest China’s Xinjiang region, have used gene editing to alter the colors of sheep.
Researchers bred five lamb, each with different colors.
This is the first time that scientists have altered the coat colors of large animals with the technology, known as CRISPR-Cas9.
Previous experiments on color alteration have been limited to mice.
