* TechnologyMarchesOn: While most adaptions of the story uses genetic engineering for Moreau's creations, the original novel actually uses vivisection, since it predates the discovery of genetics and DNA. Hence the House of Pain location in the novel, as the surgeries Moreau performs on his unwilling experiments are both unnatural and incredibly painful for the subjects.

* ScienceMarchesOn: Wells states that the changes to the animals are the result of various surgical techniques. Later adaptations of the same story state that [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetic engineering]] is responsible for altering the animals.
