Weird ‘living fossil’ fish lives 100 years, pregnant for 5

This image provided by Marc Herbin shows the development stages of the coelacanth fish. The "living fossil," still around from the time of the dinosaurs, can live for 100 years, according to a study released in the Thursday, June 17, 2021 edition of Current Biology. And for females it may seem longer because scientists calculate that the live-birth bearing fish stays pregnant for five years. (Marc Herbin/MNHN via AP)
