The story of the coelacanth is a riveting “fish story” that includes puzzles, adventure, discovery, and a daring hijacking. Something about this strange, odd-looking fish “hooks” people. Perhaps we are awed that they survived the mass extinctions that killed the dinosaurs and many other creatures. Maybe it’s their unique and baffling internal organs. Or it might be mystery that surrounds baby coelacanths—no one has ever caught one and no one knows where they live. So many coelacanth puzzles are waiting to be solved. I hope some of today’s young readers will find the answers.
