Coelacanth, "Living Fossil"

Hi everyone,

The coelacanth is a creature that scientists thought extinct 65 million years ago at the same time as the dinosaurus.
This species was seen alive in 1938 but there are many articles and reports recently published.

This is the astounding coelacanth ("see-la-kanth"), the fusion of life and time, that following a supposed extinction of 65 million years, head-lined into human consciousness with its discovery alive in 1938. Called "Old Four Legs" and the "Living Fossil," the Coelacanth quickly became the continuing obsessive focus of journalists, crypto biologists, scientists, eccentric explorers, aquariums, and divers .

It is important for studies as it is considered as the last "fish" before they left the seas to go to the ground with fins becoming legs.

Reportages are announced on ARTE and France 2 soon but I don't have the dates.
