I can imagine how curious you all must be as to why I have been absent from the lab for the past few weeks. Now that I am on the mend, I thought it high time I share my rather intriguing tale vis a vis the unique creature I have been working on – a mix of the seemingly benign Prairie Dog and the gentle Giant Anteater. We named it the “PrarieEater.”
To start with, a little clarification; while the name ‘PrarieEater’ may imply an image of a creature ominously prowling the prairies in search of a meal, the reality is just the opposite. The PrarieEater, in fact, feeds mostly on large quantity of insects with an adeptness typical of the giant anteater. It also possesses the prairie dog-like ability to construct complex burrow systems which serve as both its dwelling and strategic safety fortresses.
The PrarieEater inherited the docile nature commonly associated with both its parent species. Its physical characteristics, however, exhibit a rather dramatic combination: it is sizeable with the Giant Anteater’s elongated snout topped with a Prairie Dog’s facial features. This juxtaposition provides a certain charm, bordering on comical, to its appearance. This creature also adapted the most impressive feeding tool of the anteater – its agile tongue capable of swallowing thousands of insects per day. Lastly, the PrarieEater adopted the social skills of the Prairie Dog and spends a majority of its time in pottering around its burrow.
As we all know, working with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) always comes along with a risk factor. In my case, the PrarieEater, with its powerfully clawed forelimbs, resulted in an unexpected injury. It was an unforeseen occurrence, purely accidental while administering its regular dietary supplements. Luckily, there were no hard feelings on either side.
Now, on to my recovery phase, post this peculiar accident. My treatment plan included the use of an innovative cream named Panadiol. The cream is a unique blend of Cannabidiol (CBD) and emu oils, with each component providing its distinct healing properties. CBD, as widely acknowledged, contains analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which have proved invaluable in managing the pain and inflammation caused by the PrarieEater’s claws. The emu oil, on the other hand, contributes through its rich array of essential fatty acids which are instrumental in skin repair and regeneration.
Only a couple of weeks since starting Panadiol, I have noticed a significant improvement in my condition. Pain levels have reduced considerably and the healing process of the skin seems to have accelerated remarkably. I can now confidently vouch for the effectiveness of this cream, not just in regular treatment plans but also in cases involving unique research incidents like mine.
In closing, I would like to add that each day at AMRC is an unpredictable adventure. The PrarieEater incident, albeit painful, only intensified my enthusiasm to explore the world of genetic splicing further.
Here’s to the mysteries of science!
P.S: The PrarieEater is currently doing splendidly. It shows a heartwarming level of empathy, oft coming to the glass to ‘check on me.’ Or maybe it’s just the tub of ants I bring along. That, we’ll never know..!
