Information

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.

Design

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.

Trivia

  • 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.

"This Coelacanth thought 'I've had enough of everything eating us, we need to strike back!' So it and a few other dived deep deep deep! Deeper than any deep sea Elasmosaurus has been, then all of a sudden a glitch occurred and it was flung way into the sky. This is when it met Coelacanth god and he gave this little Coelacanth the power of 5 Coelacanth! (May not be strong but still, you don't need to go with 5x as well) He was sent back down and the rest of his life was peaceful, until he died of old age where he became an angel Coelacanth."

Design

The Angelic Coelacanth is a small, white fish with yellow fins, tail and eyes with a rectangular body. It's yet to have a remodel. It has a yellow halo over its head, along with a similar yellow color to its eyes.

Trivia

  • 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. Though a remodel can just be made for it.
  • Despite it's description, is hasn't received any kinds of buffs.
  • The writer of the description acknowledges the "Flung Off Map" glitch, it is unknown if this is Chicken himself or Chickat that wrote it.
  • If Angelic Coelacanth had the 5x buff, it would be almost the stats of an elder Triceratops.(1.500 Health, 300 attack)

The West Indian Ocean coelacanth(<nowiki>''Latimeria chalumnae'') is only of two species in the genus ''Latimeria'', which is the last genus in a very ancient family. The West Indian Ocean coelacanth is found primarily near the Comoro Islands off the east coast of Africa. They follow the oldest known living lineage of '''Sarcopterygii'''</nowiki> (lobe-finned fish and tetrapods), which means they are more closely related to lungfish, reptiles, birds and mammals than to the common ray-finned fishes. Thanks to over fishing and their slow growth rate, the West Indian Ocean coelacanth is a critically endangered species.

Coelacanths belong to the subclass Actinistia, a group of lobed-finned fish related to lungfish and certain extinct Devonian fish such as osteolepiformsporolepiformsrhizodonts, and Panderichthys. Coelacanths were thought to have become extinct in the Late Cretaceous, around 66 million years ago, but were rediscovered in 1938 off the coast of South Africa.

The coelacanth was long considered a "living fossil" because it was believed to be the sole remaining member of a taxon otherwise known only from fossils, with no close relations alive, and to have evolved into roughly its current form approximately 400 million years ago. However, several recent studies have shown that coelacanth body shapes are much more diverse than previously thought. The term "stabilomorph" has began to replace the term "living fossil" to describe these animals.
