Unless the animal is heavily based on existing ones, it will llikely not
fare too well. Nature has lots of hidden agendas and bug fixes that are
fairly subtle but have profound long term impact upon a species and its
environment. Say you make an animal that digests its fodo and gets 100% of
the energy out of it before eliminating the waste. How is that highly
concentrated low ebnergy waste going to effect the ground? Are bacteria
going ot be able to process it, most current bacteria require some energy to
still be present in order to process feces. Remember that physical
structure is a very small part of evolution. Biochemistry is where the real
evolution takes place.
The american people did to themselves
what Osama bin Laden could never do,
took away our freedoms in exchange for
a false sense of security.
