How would you behave if you met a dinosaur in the forest?

Once the fishermen caught a strange fish with bluish iridescent scales and huge lace fins. Weighed the fish as much as 58 kilograms! She seemed to have gone off the page of a book about long-extinct animals. Nothing like the fishermen ever seen! Because of the long fins resembling paws, the fish was called "coelacanth", which means "ancient four-legged."

Coelacanths are very rare and only in one place - near the Comoros in the Indian Ocean. Coelacanths are slow and cannot compete with modern fish in the pursuit of food. Therefore, they chose a secluded place without neighbors. Coelacanths are very ancient fish. They live on our planet for 400 million years, since the time of the dinosaurs!
