Caption: Coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae). X-ray of a section through a coelacanth. For many years, biologists thought that coelacanths had gone extinct around the same time as the dinosaurs. Discovery of a living coelacanth off the coast of South Africa in 1938 was one of the most dramatic scientific events of the 20th century. This specimen is a newborn and measures 31 centimetres in length.
