Yeah, it looks more like a giant snail without a shell.
Speaking off topic but on this topic of rare, ancient fish. We have the dubious honor of being part of the Pyramid Lake water conservation movement which is fueled in part by the fact that it holds the only home to the Cui-ui fish <if you wanna call it that>. This ugly bottom feeder lives with some of the largest Lahonton Cuthroat trout ever to be caught by humans, if it's not a minimum
of 5lbs you have to throw it back. The Cui-ui is protected though and when it comes down to whether the city's of Reno/Sparks get water or the Cui-ui do, the fish wins every time.
This very ugly fish, if caught and kept will yield you a minimum
fine of $300,000- and
5 years in federal prision. This is what lands you broke and in jail: Attachment 158653
Very different from this tasty morsel: Attachment 158655
As they say, "ignorance of the law is not an excuse" as there are signs and photos all around the lake of that ugly fish, even descriptions of what's happened to people who got busted with one. Even if you get your Pyramid Lake fishing license in California, there's a picture posted in the shop that tells you to put this one back in the water.
It's not directly related to the Celacamp but they are somehow related and both from the same era, when the Earth was very young. Here's a photo of a Celacamp relative caught off Madagascar: http://www.dinofish.com/Madcoelacanth.html
Ugly ugly ugly, I'd throw it back just because of that.

I was 21 whent this guy was born, he has piercing blue
eyes he played a great part in "The Good Son", later he spent 9 years filming a movie based on the second best
of books in the world "The Lord of The Rings
" trilogy by J.R.R.Tolkien, they're beaten out only by the Bible. If you've never seen "The Good Son" I highly reccommend it, there's another very recognizable guy in that one.
