Coelecanth



Hi Folks;

Thanks for all the references and thoughts on my two queries regarding
the Pterodactyl and the mammoth meat. I knew the Pterodactyl story was
hogwash, but I was interested in why it was perpetrated, thanks for the
answers.

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? What is the estimated population of this
creature today, and lastly, how old is this species?

Thanx
