  • Stitched Sealife: Coelacanth lurks in the Fossil Hall

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 17, 2010

    Stitch London are teaming up with London’s Natural History Museum on August 27 to bring you the Stitch a Squid event.

    Six stitched specimens from the Deep Sea have escaped in the Museum. This is the tale of the first of the Stitched Sealife Six…

    The cheeky Coelacanth, known for his hollow spine and its tendency to ‘walk’ across the seabed, was stitched into the world by Stitch Londoner Ginger Knits.

    Meet the Coelacanth

    He dwells 150-400 metres under the sea

    He is one of the oldest species of fish in the world, but that didn’t stop him strutting his finny stuff down the Fossil Hall of the Museum for all the world to see.

    Comparing fin size with a plesiosaur

    Coelacanth have also been known to stand on their heads. We judge from the look on the face of this escaped specimen that he is capable of much more. Be vigilant! He could be up to anything.

    Planning something fishy

    Return tomorrow for the Deep Sea tale of another stitched sealife escapee.

    You can also join us at the Natural History Museum August 27 to Stitch a Squid and join in the hunt for them.
