Caption

Short dragonfish (Eurypegasus draconis). X-ray of a section through a short dragonfish, showing its broad expanded pectoral fins (left and right) that resemble the wings of a dragon. Despite their fierce appearance, dragonfish are harmless to humans and eat only crustaceans and insects. This specimen measures 8 centimetres in length.
