The Inner Lives of Fish


From the Wall Street Journal:


"The Smithsonian's National Collection of Fishes has an estimated four million individual specimens, representing more than 70% of the world's fish species. 'X-Ray Vision: Fish Inside Out,' an exhibit that opened at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington in February 2012, captures these aquatic wonders in X-rays. The prints offer a glimpse into the intricate inner workings of the fish and, for scientists, allow a detailed study of their anatomy and evolutionary development without dissection."


Images from the exhibit, which will be traveling to sites around the country through 2015, from the top down: Viper Moray Eel; Wedge-Tail Triggerfish; Long-Spine Porcupine Fish; Torrent Loach.


More: a Flickr stream of 40 fish x-rays from the exhibit.
