The Coelacanth (pronounced SEE-la-canth) is a primitive lobe-finned fish, (Crossopterygii) that appeared about 350 million years ago. Coelacanth (meaning "hollow spine") is about 5 feet (1.5 m) long. This carnivore (meat-eater) was thought to have been extinct for millions of years, but a living Coelacanth was caught in the Indian Ocean off the coast of South Africa in 1938.
The fish is 10 5/8 inches long on a 12 x 7 in ch plate.
