Caption

Coelacanth research. Researcher working on computed tomography (CT) scans and 3D models of a coelacanth specimen, holding an endocast of an internal head cavity. These can be produced by combining non-invasive scans with 3D printing. The scans are of a West Indian Ocean coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae, also on poster). 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.
