Wonders Of The Wild Coelacanth
The newest entry in Star Ace’s “Wonders of the Wild” series of ancient animals is the Coelacanth, a fish that has existed for 400 million years. Once thought to have been wiped out with the dinosaurs, living examples have been found recently. Living up to 100 years and growing to 2 meters in length, the Coelacanth can be found in waters off Africa and Indonesia.
The beautiful statue of this “living fossil” was sculpted by the artisans of X-Plus and Kaibutsuya/Sean Cooper and features a hand-painted deco based on recent photos of the live fish. This polyresin statue is 28 cm long and is mounted to an environment base with a name plate identifying the scientific name and habitat.
The Deluxe set includes a sculpted replica of the fossil of the Coelacanth as it was found by paleontologists. The fossil replica is also available separately.
