Here’s a “moving X-ray” of an animal. Can you guess which animal?
It’s a bat! Notice that it has bones in its wings.
These are both X-rays. On the left is a human hand. On the right is another animal. What do you think it is? Why?
This is a flipper of a sea turtle! Even though turtles don’t need fingers to swim, they still have finger bones inside!
Here is the X-ray of part of an animal. What animal do you think it is?
Here’s a hint: It lives underwater, and its eyes are on the sides of its head. Do you have any more ideas now?
It’s a hammerhead shark!
This is an X-ray of an animal’s head. What animal do you think it is? What are the big white parts in the X-ray?
It’s a horse! They have 2 sets of teeth: small ones in the front to grab and tear food, and lots in the back to chew.
Here’s someone going inside a machine, but this machine won't show an X-ray. What do you think it will show?
It’s called a CT scanner. Unlike an X-ray, this machine can show people’s muscles and organs!
CT scanners aren’t just used for people. Doctors can use them to help animals too. This is a lion!
