So, we've decided to brainstorm ideas over the weekend for our presentation. I was browsing and looking up new animal splices. The things I found were so strange! It actually creeps me out to see all the possible 'things' people are capable of putting together.

I think exploring the "splicing" is a good idea. It's funny the animals she puts together.

I love some of these! So cool that the liger exists.

I think the clear distinction though is that these examples were either fake or real but accidents (whether in the wild or in captivity), and not forced to happen by humans. In the Flood the humans are doing crazy experiments at the atomic DNA level, between species that are not closely enough related to ever mate in the wild.

I wonder if this will ever be possible in real life? And is possible, is it a good idea?

It is true that these were accidents, I should have chosen my words more carefully since these species were not induced by people.
I think it is very possible to breed species that are not closely related. I feel that people have a lot more knowledge than they may be able to control. And one of these days, we'll be able to fix the sterility issues with many of the hybrid species, and they will reproduce successfully. However, I haven't quite decided whether creating these species is a good or bad idea yet..
