Caption: Coelacanth research. Researcher working on computed tomography (CT) scans and 3D computer images of a coelacanth specimen, marking a specific structure (red). The scans on the screen include sagittal and axial sections through the head and body. These are scans of a West Indian Ocean coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae). The coelacanth and related fish flourished in the Mesozoic era, which lasted from 400-60 million years ago. This fish was thought to be extinct until its discovery by science in 1938, when one was caught off South Africa. Photographed in 2010, at the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), Paris, France.
