To tie this in with the coelocanth thread, one of the reasons why
coelocanths are being overfished and are in danger of becoming extinct
for real this time is not because they are good eating (they aren't,
seemingly) but precisely because scientists and collectors are paying for
them.   (Not that mastodons are in danger of becoming extinct of course).
