9780091751159: Living Fossil: Story of the Coelacanth

Off the coast of Southern Africa a fishing boat drags in a strange creature. A museum curator and a fish expert realize that they are looking at an animal from another time. This is a tale of modern science - chance capture, international rivalry and the obsessive personalities of the scientists. The coelacanth lives in the deep waters around one group of tiny islands. Why? Can it survive? What other forgotten creatures remain to be discovered?
