The Coelacanth (pronounced si-le-kanth) is a rare fish species thought to be extinct since the Cretaceous period until a specimen was discovered in the 1938. It is thought to be a transitional evolutionary link from fish to tetrapod because of the presence of its leg-like structures. Only a dozen or so Coelacanth have ever been seen. They have no commercial value apart from being coveted by museums and private collectors.
