Today we’re looking at one of the oldest fish to swim our waters—the sturgeon. These 200 million-year-old fish are lovingly referred to as primitive fish. However, their value to our understanding of ancient times is anything but primitive. Experts study sturgeons to get a clearer picture of prehistoric animals.  Here are some facts about sturgeons.    […] Prehistoric, Sturgeon Fish, Sturgeon, Red Lipped Batfish, Whale, Weird Looking Animals, Species, Fishing Life, Prehistoric Animals
