Coelacanth Is A Living Sea Fossil With Legs

I come to know about the fish with “legs” called Coelacanth from National Geographic, which reported a giant live specimen of Coelacanth has been caught again lately at the seawater near Bunaken National Marine Park (off Sulawesi island) on May 2007.

The first appearance of Coelacanth on the Earth can be traced back to a fossil record in the Middle Devonian at about 410 million years ago.

The statue of Coelacanth printed on special purpose coin.Now, I wonder that at 410 millions year later, are human beings survive as “living fossil” to those future “creatures” on the Earth? Probably yes, if we do care about global warming and the war that sending human being to the hell!

On May 2007, Indonesian fisherman Yustinus Lahama accidentally netted a living Coelacanth measuring at 1.2-meter and 50KG, near the Bunaken National Marine Park, off Sulawesi Island. However, the first living Coelacanth was found off Africa’s coast in 1938.
