Beautiful 'Ray

Just look!
X-ray of Heliotrygon gomesi, preadult male.
Is that not gorgeous?!  An x-ray of a new species of stingray found in the Amazon.  The new genus is dubbed 'Heliotrygon', and you can read more about them here.

I love that new things are still being discovered and surprising people.
