Artificial zoanthropes are the most common type of zoanthrope. These zoanthropes have been around since Tylon Corporations biotechnological experiments during the mid 90s (experimentation going on as early as the late 70s but had only had high chance of success recently.) They had only been exposed to the public eye after Tylons demise in 1998. They make roughly 19% of the todays population, 3% away from doubling the population of natural zoanthropes.
Transformation is induced by genetic experimentation. While the experiments activate the genetic codes that induce zoanthropy, there are practices before hand that are performed to manipulate the subjects DNA in order to achieve selective zoanthropy and thus obtain rarer forms of zoanthropes. With the aid of medical science, the mortality rate of these zoanthropes first transformation has decreased drastically- assuming the genetic experiments were a success. It has been rumored that death by an artificial first transformation is far wors
