  1. Rhino horns look different from the natural unicorn horns. Narwhal horns look more similar to it, so why not uss those instead?

  2. Can you add a genome without subtracting another genome? Or do you lose sth? For example, if you add the horn genome, will you lose the "no horn" genome, or even something else, like say… healthy heart genome? That is, is there a cost on another characteristic, when adding genomes?

  3. Humans of the future might have different skin and hair colors using animal genes.

    A blue skinned man with green hair..
