Emily Anthes travels from petri dish to pet store as she explores how biotechnology is shaping the future of our furry and feathered friends. She discovers how we can use cloning to protect endangered species and craft prosthetics to save injured animals; introduces us to some of the animals that are ushering in this astonishing age of enhancement, including cyborg beetles and the world's first cloned cat; and interviews the innovators who are attempting to improve the lives of many species - including our own. Highlighting both the peril and the promise of our scientific superpowers, Anthes takes us on an adventure into a world where our grandest science fiction fantasies are fast becoming reality.
