True story: the large contract research corporation where I used to work
used the developing embryos of african clawed frogs (a fully aquatic frog)
for toxicity research instead of mice, because the animal rights activists
didn't give a * about amphibians. Now, I personally thought the frogs were
way cuter than mice, but apparently the "mammalists" don't.
