My VW New Beetle had a flat tire this morning. When I opened the trunk to get out my spare tire, I was surprised to find a full size spare. They are about as rare as the coelacanth, once thought to have gone extinct with the dinosaurs, but discovered alive and well in 1938. Today you can buy a coelacanth keychain. Here's a nice coelacanth stamp from Madagaskar.
