Why haven't this gotten any replies yet? It is beautiful!
I am a biologist and these kinda threads with science-related art always makes me intrested. I have studied a bit about ancient fishes (lol these ones are obligatory to know about when you talk about evolution). Which one of the two Latimeria species is it? Is it menadoensis or chalumnae? This really made me excited.

Beautiful fish. Has a nice wet look to it. Earth's ancient past offers many artistic opportunities, hence the field of paleoart.
