Caption: Coelacanth research. Researchers handling a coelacanth head cavity endocast and discussing computer coelacanth models. In the background is a model of a West Indian Ocean coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae). Endocasts can be produced by combining non-invasive scans with 3D printing. 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.
