"The jungle is dark but full of diamonds." 

– Arthur A. Miller


We're a niche biotech focused on applied experimental zootech R&D innovation, specifically, of a nature-inspired & real-world, rubber meets the road kind. We've also special interest in zoopharma biomimetics, i.e., the quintessential potential for super-sized, out-sized effective, fully personalized (P2P), low R&D cost (anti-Eroom's law), accelerated/fast-tracked timeline in/from animal (K-9) & human outlier-extremophile biology to produce naturally-engineered living medicinal & functional enhancement drugs, what we term, golden goose golden eggs living foundries.


We straddle the fuzzy line between the exotic, fantastic yey possible, say, "impossible", either way tip-of-the-spear cutting-edge. Some of our R&D is currently in real world use in eXtremistan, some on its wayn some on the drawing-board, others merely fledgling BIG ideas taking seed in innovo-incubators borne of fortuity & serendipity.


Animals may not seem like a source of technology & medicine, they're wet-'n-wild, somewhat unpredictable & sometimes downright uncooperative with a mind of their own. Indeed, just observing them can alter their behavior, & even instantly alter their very molecular make-up, the shape-shifter effect, thus, masking their true capabilities. Yet, it is just this sort of quintessentially sophisticated-&-integrated wetworks software functionality that allows them to tolerate extreme, austere & complex environments, & express adaptability & not merely resilience but anti-fragility. These are the qualities &"diamonds" we're interested in, gravitate to, tap into.

Nature as Guide-Post, Model & Ruler

"The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man."

– Richard P. Feynman


Nature is a highly enriched source of real world, i.e., no nonsense tried-&-tested, technologies; her creations speak volumes. Indeed, many have survived an eons-gauntlet of outright unforgiving, say, cut-throat harsh times & that are hands-down human-unmatched, an often little or too little overlooked fact. Hence, it seems far more intelligent to take a page out of her consummate, 24/7 & everwhere innovative jungle lab play-book & tap-elevate her creations to suit & bend to our needs than to try to out-pitch her with half-baked ideas with an anyhow dismal hit-rate & which always seem to anyhow fall off the arc, her arc.

"Both the body & its parts are in a continuous state of dissolution & nourishment, so they are inevitably undergoing permanent change."

– Ibn al-Nafis  (c. 1270) 


We're into life fundamentals, specifically, those base & deep core wholemeal, not twig-like piecemeal things which power & sustain "the stuff of life", namely, us, at its deepest source, the "fire of life", metabolism, & the kaleidoscope of untapped (epigenetic) performance, health & biomedical possibilities that may be realized by profoundly dialing down (& then back up!) metabolic rate through exposure to extreme austerity & environmental exposure, often complex, harsh & sometimes tightrope perilous.
