The process of diaphonizing animals is a lengthy and expensive project which takes a long time, by putting certain chemicals together you get the result that the meat starts becomes transparent and the bones discolour, making it very clear how the bones are connected to each other and what the inside of the animal looks like, even the cartilage is visible!
