East London Museum Reviews
More info about East London Museum
In operation for close on 100 years, the East London Museum is a treasure trove of finds collected over the years. The museum has three prominent items on display; that of the world’s oldest footprint, the first coelacanth ever discovered and possibly the only dodo egg still in existence. The fossilised human footprint was found on East London’s Nahoon beach and estimated to be 124000 years old while the coelacanth was deemed extinct until a ship captain, fishing along the East London coastline, called in to the museum in 1938 to report a strange catch. In amongst his nets was a coelacanth and the discovery caused a worldwide sensation; however, living coelacanths have since been located in other parts of the world. The flightless dodo bird, once endemic only to the island of Mauritius, is most definitely extinct, partly due to its trusting nature (it had no natural enemies) and through relentless hunting by man.
