Spotlight on: Diaphonized Rats - Ep15.7 (Mini)

This week on The Evolution Show: diaphonized rats!

Diaphonization is a chemical process where the flesh is made transparent by soaking in a protein-eating enzyme, and the bones and cartilage are colored by calcium-seeking dyes! This method of preparation was invented in the 1970s by biologists who wanted a way to study animal anatomy that left the skeletal structure intact. Diaphonized rats are an awesome example of this weird and wonderful procedure!

Spotlight on: Shark Teeth - Ep15.3 (Mini)

This week on The Evolution Show: shark teeth!

Bull sharks, tiger sharks, and makos are all found in temperate coastal waters worldwide. Bull sharks are the most dangerous to humans, as they are strong, aggressive, and range close to the shore where people swim. The novel Jaws was based on a series of real bull shark attacks in the early twentieth century.
