You’ll be familiar with most animals one finds in a zoo، from the lizards to the birds، but have you ever seen one X-rayed before?

If not، Oregon Zoo was here to help with a Twitter thread comprised of X-rays taken during health checks at their veterinary centre، Press Association reported.

The photos prompted much chin-stroking from the viewing public، so here they are in all their glory.



Just take a look at that tail – a perfect spiral.

How about a Rodrigues flying fox?

A ball python was next، and while its skeleton was no surprise، that didn’t make it any less interesting.

Did anyone else presume a beaver’s tail was devoid of bones?

And last but certainly not least، the Toco Toucan – stripped of its wondrous colours on the beak، it looks positively prehistoric.


And while all five X-ray images produced intrigue، there was one clear winner: the chameleon.

You can’t camouflage yourself on an X-ray، buddy. We see you.
