Oregon Zoo offers an insiders view with incredible X-rays of its animals

Creepy, freaky or really cool.

Any way you look at it, the Oregon Zoo has provided a snapshot of the really inner workings of its animals. A behind-the-scenes look, if you will.

The facility shared black and white X-ray images of everything from a slithery ball snake to one big beaver tail.

“Amazing and gothy animal X-rays taken during health checks at our veterinary center,” the zoo said in a fascinating thread posted on Twitter.

It almost looks like art. In fact, it may well be.

The flying fox, is a bat, by the way, and it was taken while the bat was lying down.

Some things the zoo clarified online for puzzled observers.

How does this thing not get back pain?
