In recent years there has been great excitement among scientists, particularly among zoologists and pal~eontologists, because of a sensational find. Several living specimens of one of the oldest fishes in the earth's history, which scientists had assumed to be extinct for about sixty million years, were brought up from the depths of the Indian Ocean. The first one was found on December 22nd, 1938, but at that time, when the first troubles of the coming war were stirring, not much attention was paid to it. By now another eight specimens have been fished up. The last one, on November 12, 1954, could even be brought ashore alive and died there under special circumstances, since it was not sufficiently protected from the light of the sun.
