A rare Atlantic sturgeon that lived on Earth along with the dinosaurs was washed ashore on the East Coast, CBS News reports.
A photographer took pictures of the prehistoric and endangered fish on Assateague Island, located between Maryland and Virginia.
The Atlantic sturgeon is found from Canada to Florida.
These fish can live for up to 60 years and can reach more than 4 meters in length and weigh more than 362 kg. They look like prehistoric creatures, because they are.
According to a University of Michigan study, they are considered living fossils, which means that this species has hardly changed in millions of years.
But their rarity is due to the fact that they are endangered.
