The Oregon Zoo often has to x-ray its animals for veterinary healthcare purposes, and it recently posted a large collection of these x-rays, providing a unique look under the skin of many furry and scaly creatures. The striking images, which include a chameleon, a toucan, a ball python and the tail of a beaver, can help diagnose veterinary medical conditions more quickly and allow animals to spend less time being kept under anesthesia by their vets.
- There are plenty of animals out there that need to be looked at like they are humans.
- Just because there are zoos that do not treat their animals right does not mean this is the case with this zoo.
- Some people do not realize all that goes into looking after the animals that live within those confinements.
