Veiled chameleon, (Chamaeleo calyptratus), prepared with a process called diaphonization, or clearing and staining. The specimen undergoes a series of chemical baths including submersion in a digestive enzyme to render the tissues transparent. It is eventually placed in a soliton of alizarin, a highly pigmented red dye that bonds to the bones, and afterwards is preserved in glycerin.

This incomplete dog skeleton was found by a friend of mine (pandaaa) and I cleaned it. He was an old male hound with several pathologies due to age.
Great find !
