Mutated Mouse Breathes Underwater

Scientists have been working to find a way for mice to breathe underwater. In 1996 a scientist, Martha Collins did an experiment consisting of three mice and a gene in fish that helps them regrow their fins when they age. After three weeks of waiting the mice started to grow gills. The next day Collins placed the mice in the tank only to watch them slowly drown. This inspired scientist Hale Smith to do further research in the matter.
"I have a hypothesis that the mice died do to the fact that they never had gills to begin with." Smith reported on the news in 2009. His explanation was that the formula in the cells given to the mice were based off the pattern to regrow there gills. The mice didn't have any gills to regrow so the gills were not entirely accurate. Since the gill were not accurate the mice died shortly after being placed in the water.
In 2014 Hale Smith came up with a brilliant idea. It took him two years to a successful plan.
In the experiment ten mice were placed in a cage and next to it was a tank with water in it. There was also a bucket of fish eggs. Hale took one of the eggs from the bucket and cut it open under a microscope. Inside he picked at all the cells until he found the one the that made the gills. Slowly he removed the gene. Next he took a female mouse and injected the gene into the mouse. Hale did this til there were no mice left. He waited three days. On the fourth day of the experiment he placed the mice in the tank. They lived! This result brought more curiosity to Smith. In 2016 he did the same test except using dogs and deer. The dogs lived but the deer survived. Hale Smith is trying to come up with a reasons for these strange results in hope of seeking the information that could allow us to do the same to humans.
