Striking x-radiographs of the museum's world-leading collection of fish specimens are used to explore how scientists understand evolutionary development by studying fish skeletons, fin spines, teeth, and other physical structures. Created using the latest digital x-ray technology, the images reveal delicate and exquisite details and tell these sea creatures’ unforgettable story. The exhibition is based on the work being done by the museum's scientists.
