look at that grin (adorable)
this cheeky fellow is a Chamaeleo calyptratus (veiled chameleon) embryo stained to demonstrate cartilage (alcian blue) and bone (alizarin red)
the “cleared skeleton” technique, a variant of which was used to produce the above image, involves rendering the non-skeletal tissue transparent, usually with benzyl alcohol/benzly benzoate
the result is stunning insight into the process of skeletal development
