  1. Wow craig, these are really cool! So ghostly and artistic. Can’t be nature when it comes to beauty and symmetry.

    Who did these x-rays?

  2. I did the x-rays in the Zoology Dept. at Harvard. It was part of the project to characterize the diversity of deep-sea gastropods. See McClain et al. 2004 and McClain 2005 both in Evolution
