City Hall in East London

A visit to the East London Mueum in Oxford Street is highly recommended. It boasts a large natural science collection and collections ranging from the prehistoric times of South Africa to early history of the Xhosa people. And here, one can admire a stuffed Coelacanthus. This ancient fish species is estimated to be about 350 million years old and was believed to be extinct for more than 65 million years, until a fisherman from East London caught such a specimen in 1938. In the following years more catches were made in the extremely deep waters at East London. The Coelacanthus is a predator fish that grows to a length of 1,5 metres and weighs about 60 kilos.
