Okay, I'm reading this article and getting a really bad Barn of the Blood Llama flashback.

Not that there are GOOD Barn of the Blood Llama flashbacks, mind you......

Llamas Enlisted to Thwart Biological Weapons

"If terrorists ever unleashed a biological weapon, unusual molecules normally found in the blood of llamas could quickly help warn of the attack, scientists now report.

Biochemist Ellen Goldman at the Naval Research Laboratory with virologist Andrew Hayhurst at the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research and their colleagues investigated llama antibodies. Past studies revealed that the binding regions of these antibodies and those from camels and sharks are unusually small, just one-tenth the size of common human antibodies."
