Visit to the Smithsonian

I am excited to bring you a look into the Smithsonian’s American Museum of Natural History. We are taking a sneak peek into the Department of Ichthyology with Research Curator, Melanie Stiassny. Ichthyology is the study of fishes. In this collection you will see the ceolacanth, Latimeria chalumnae, the three lobed caudal finned fish considered to be the missing link between fish and tetrapods (animals with four limbs).
