Scientists sequence the coelacanth genome

16 posts in this topic

Referred to as a 'living fossil', the coelacanth has barely changed at all in over 300 million years.

The genetic secrets of a "living fossil" have been revealed by scientists. Researchers sequenced the genome of the coelacanth: a deep-sea fish that closely resembles its ancestors, which lived at least 300 million years ago.

I would bet that there are many other "Living Fossils" in the midnight and abyssal zones.

This is one of the many examples of the theory of evolution.It doesn't exist as far as I believe.As one of our regular readers suggested before,"If Man was once ape,then why are there still apes & human beings?" That was well said!

Oh,and I love Billy Connolly too. lol XOXOXO

PLEASE...not another one.BTW I saw a really cool ( for a 10 year old boy) movie once about a Coelacanth. A scientist was studying the thing in a lab and a dragon fly landed on it for a snack - voila'!! A giant dragon fly enters the picture. the 1960's were a cool time to be a kid :)

it would seem no evolution on this fish took place because it had no need to evolve. Does that sound good?

That is what they are theorizing and I am sure there are many more abyss dwellers that have been around in the same form for millions of years.
