Awesome fish X-rays!

The Smithsonian in Washington is having an exhibit featuring fish X-rays, and it's the coolest thing ever! The only fish bones I've seen before are the ones I've almost choked on while eating fish, and now they're actually enjoyable!
Anyways, I'll attach some pics... Anyone in the area must go!!! I wish I could

I can't attach the photos since the images are copy right...
But they are worth going through!

Here they are on the Smithsonian flikr:

And the website link, if you want to know the dates:
http://www.mnh.si.edu/exhibits/x-ray-vision/index.cfm

Edit: I don't know why I put this under betta chat. Mods feel free to move it to wherever you find appropriate. I'm not in the right mind today apparently -headdesk-.

I know! :(
Fish really are art. The differences are amazing, some of those skeletal structures make no sense to me! O.o

Right!?
The fish that had a skull that looked like a dogs skull I thought it was a dogfish. Turns out it was the triggerfish. Shows I cannot ID most fish based off it's insides xD

I thought the Triggerfish kind of looked like a goat as far as the skull went...a lot of those are really bizarre, but really cool, too.

I didn't understand the one all bumpy at the bottom. "Oreosoma atlanticum"



What a weird fish...
