Dinosaur Fish Lives (And Takes A Nice Photo)

This is one of those pesky Coelocanths that showed up unannounced in the early twentieth century despite having been declared extinct since the Late Cretaceous period - 60-odd million years ago, which was even before I was in short pants. In the photos below from National Geographic, you can see the fossilized version and the swimming-around-in-the-ocean-just-fine-thank-you version. Scientists are awesome, but they sometimes think they know more than they actually do. On the other hand, I freely confess I know very little, but spread it over a wide range of subjects.
