1. ID genus
2. Where and by who was this fish first discovered?
3. Why is the discovery of this fish significant?
4. What is one threat to this fish's survival?
1. Latimeria
2. South Africa, catch of Captain Hendrik Goosen and discovered by Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer
3. Previously thought to be extinct at the end of the Cretaceous and was 'rediscovered' without having evolved that much (living fossil).
4. Deep-sea fishing (trawling), which can accidently catch Coelacanths.
Yep, your turn

I just put that as a question because I have seen it in several invitational test papers. Also, what do you mean it is illegal according to rules? They aren't explicitly banned in the rules...

Dont the rules say that you can only ask to ID things on the list?

That's a pretty bad argument. The rules don't ban much of anything. It doesn't mean I should throw some random calculus or something on a fossils test for no reason.

Anyways the question has been answered. Someone else ask another question.
