DescriptionIn Morocco, researchers discovered a 66-million-year-old fossilized lung of a previously unknown ancient fish species , as large as a great white shark. Analysis suggests the fish was a much larger member of the coelacanths, an order of fish nicknamed 'living fossils' that were thought to be extinct until a living specimen was found in 1938.
