  Tracking Ancient Man - Cambrian Period   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Coelecanth: This species of fish was assumed extinct 65 million years ago during the cretaceous period, about the same time the dinosaurs are assumed to have become extinct.
The earliest Coelecanth fossil is dated 375 million years ago during the devonian period and was assumed by evolutionists to be the missing link between fish and amphibians.
In 1938 a Coelecanth was caught off the coast of Africa and is found to be identical as those in the fossil record.

 Creationism vs. Evolution
It was taught for many years that a strang fishh fossil, the coelecanth, showed that this creature's front fins were turning into legs.
In 1938 someone found a living coelecanth off the coast of Africa, and it was just like the fossil- front fins and all.

Later, when scientists examined this bizarre catch, they confirmed that it was, to the shock of the world, a fish called a Coelecanth, a prehistoric remnant that had, up until then, been considered extinct for millions of years.
Today, in the waters near Madagascar, the Coelecanth is thriving once more, eons after its alleged disappearance from the face of the earth.
Like the humble Coelecanth, some skateboard tricks disappear only to be re-discovered in a later age by new explorers.

Despite the death metal overtones of the artist and title, it's actually a slow, mournful assemblage of bowed standup bass, death-march jazz drumming, and keyboard melodies that bubble up from underwater depths where no light reaches.
It is coelecanth slow and chillingly wise, killingly lonely music.

 GAME STATS
Everyone chipped in with tidy defence as last year's finalists were simply out-classed for most of the first half.
Even with an impressive looking new recruit, Coelecanth struggled to beat the full court press applied by guards Kaz and Mo as the MGA forced turnovers leading to more scoring opportunities.
Mo continued his hot streak over into this game with a fancy pass to Johnny for a sweet little two and then was on the end of a nice dish from David for a lay-up of his own.

I have another layman's question for you; The Coelecanth was recently featured in National Geographic (2 or 3 years ago).
At the time of the article, they were already a very small population, does anyone know if they are still being fished and has any research been done recently on this ancient fish?

It is a member of the lobe-finned species of fish that evolved into the first amphibians about 400 million years ago.

 Examining the Fossil Record
The Coelecanth is a very strange-looking fish which many paleontologists thought — based on the fossil record — was an extinct creature midway between fish and amphibians, which died out 200 million years ago.
The Coelecanth was thought to be a fossil midway between fish and frog until a French scientist bought one in the marketplace in Zanzibar, off the coast of East Africa.
He took it home and found that not only is it not extinct, but it's just a funny-looking fish.

A coelecanth is a species of fish thought to be extinct for about 35,000,000 years.
Eventually a dive recorded the species on film in their native habitat, at an average depth of 300', where the fish used their lobed fins not to crawl out of the water and become amphibians but to propel themselves along the bottom as they have been doing for more than 100,000,000 years.

An odd-looking and presumably extinct sea creature, the coelecanth, was discovered alive off the coast of Africa in 1938.

 MYSTERIOUS WORLD: Spring 2002: Mysterious Sea Serpents Part I: The Loch Ness Monster   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Newly discovered species of undersea life, such as the "Megamouth" shark, as well as older species previously thought to be extinct, such as the Coelecanth, are constantly being caught and categorized as man's curiosity and technology take him ever deeper into new zones of animal life beneath the waves.
Though to date no concrete proof has been found of the modern existence of these creatures, much time and effort has been — and continues to be — spent in search of them.
The fact that they existed in the past, coupled with the survival of such species of ancient fish such as the coelecanth, fill would-be "monster hunters" with the hope that they might someday be given the honor of having discovered — or rediscovered — a living, breathing sea serpent.

Then in 1938 this nice little charade was spoiled by a fisherman who pulled up a dead coelecanth of the southeastern coast of Africa.
It was about 20 years before the phonies began to admit that the coelecanth was not a 70 million year old creature, but was, in fact, a creature still very much alive, and prospering, in the waters near Madagascar and the Comoro Islands.
To date there have been about 200 of these strange looking fish caught by fishermen, and some have been very much alive.
