This looks like a candidate for the newest energy-efficient lightbulb, but it’s actually an x-ray of a recently-discovered freshwater stingray species.

The ray is called Heliotrygon gomesi, also known as a “pancake stingray,” and it was discovered last year in the Amazon. Grist List is always glad to hear about new species — they’re proof that we haven’t yet destroyed everything that is beautiful and good — but especially when they have skeletons that look like they came from the MoMA store.
