Latimeria Chalumnae or Gombessa, the blue & white coelacanth from Africa. This fish sparked scientific interest in the lobe fin, so I painted this one all nerdy like.
Latimeria Menadoensis or Raja Laut, the brown & gold coelacanth from Indonesia. Those who have swam with them said they sparkle with what looks like gold flecks. He’s naturally all blinged out. Shiny shiny!
