Transparent goldfish

A see-through goldfish whose beating hearts can be seen through translucent scales and skin at Japan's Mie University. A team headed by Yutaka Tamaru, an associate biology professor at the school, has succeeded in producing the transparent goldfish, which is part of efforts to reduce the need for dissections in laboratory.
