Coelacanths were thought to be extinct until a live one was caught in 1938. These fish were thought to have gone extinct during the Late Cretaceous Period.
The Coelacanth [seel-a-canth] is a small, blue fish with dark blue fins, tail and eyes. It has small, light blue spots on its body. If you are a veteran Dinosaur Simulator player, you might remember Coelacanth being used as food, as it would spawn in a pack's nest and die until you logged. They were a very helpful source of food for large packs. The Coelacanth is considered a "living fossil". It was thought to have been extinct until 1938 when living specimens were found off the coast of South Africa.
The Coelacanth is one of the weakest animals in the game.
In real life, the Coelacanth is inedible, and local fishermen shunned it because eating it would make you sick.
The Coelacanth has the lowest growth rate, taking only seven minutes to elder. It also gives you only 3 DNA after Day 25.
The Coelacanth is a species of Lobe-Finned fish. The snack fish species, Holypterygius, Hadronector, and Macropoma are also lobe-finned fish.
The Coelacanth is currently the only animal featured in Dinosaur Simulator that is still alive today.
The Angelic Coelacanth is a small, white fish with yellow fins, tail and eyes with a rectangular body.
The Angelic Coelacanth was originally going to have a counterpart called "Demonic Coelacanth". The Demonic Coelacanth never made it into the game, and likely never will since the model for it is no longer of acceptable quality to be added.
