In this piece Samantha Weinberg is able to take accounts from JLB Smith's classic "Old Fourlegs" as well as accounts from his family, from Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer and her family, and from a variety of modern sources to piece together an accurate portrayal of the discovery of the coelacanth, the search for a second specimen, and all that falls between then and now. For anyone unable to locate a copy of "Old Fourlegs" or wanting a more modern approach to the story, this piece is a must.
