It's typical for us to see the x-rays of humans and pets. But have you ever wondered what you would see inside zoo animals?
Lucky for us, curious people, the ZSL London Zoo decided to release these images. These x-rays were taken during the regular check-up of the zoo animals.
According to Heather Macintosh, a veterinary nurse at the zoo, they can detect many things about an animal's health by looking at the x-rays. The team surveyed snakes, turtles, geckos, and armadillos.
Macintosh particularly liked observing the snakes on x-ray. The 200 to 400 vertebrae of these creatures are such a captivating sight.
These armadillos are chiefly nocturnal. Their ability to burrow for shelter comes from their tough forelegs and sharp front claws.
The Gila monster is a venomous lizard. They are native to the South-western part of the USA, and the North-western part of Mexico.
Another nocturnal reptile belonging to the rainforest's cliffs and trees. The male gecko is territorial and will typically attack intruders.
This creature is native to southern China and Southeast Asia. Although they are critically endangered, they are still consumed as food.
Corn snakes are typically kept as pets because they are easy to care for and docile. They're famous for their pretty colours and skin patterns.
