Deep down along the East African coast, hidden in underwater caves, we find the Coelacanths, fish from another time! These 400 million year old living fossils were once thought to have become extinct along with the dinosaurs. Possibly the sole remaining representative of a family of fleshy finned fish. Perhaps the ancestors of amphibians that started to roam on land? When we look at the World around us, we can tell it has not always been the same. The top of a cliff was once the bottom of the sea. Fossilized shells of long gone ocean creatures can be found right here. Since the Earth was formed many exciting changes have occurred. The key is time. The long geological history of the Earth dwarfs our own human history. In the 19th century in Victorian times people had a different perception of the Natural World around them. Most people stuck to the conventional belief that the Earth is only a few thousand years old.
