65 million years old unique fish

Asprete (Romanichthys valsanicola) is a 65 million years old living fosile which can be found only in Romania—mainly in Valea Vâlsanului and Râul Doamnei.


Deforestation, road and dam construction, and stone exploitation are sadly driving the species near extinction.
