Well, I'm back. Took a little time off to spend on Ocracoke Island(awesome!) and get my son off to college...
So much to report ~!
Until I find the time to elaborate, here's a really cool video of a Coelacanth (pronounced 'see LA canth').
Ancient ancient bony fish found in remote pockets off of eastern South Africa and Indonesia. It was believed to have gone extinct some 65 million years ago until a scientist found a specimen in a fish market in 1938! Lo and behold, living fishes were found sporadically since then.
This is the best recording I've seen so far. Healthy, robust.
