I've found none—in order for this phenotype to work, wouldn't the fins have to be extraordinarily long?--BCS —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.98.225.118 (talk) 08:59, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I just found and added to the page an illustration of it. I don't think any photographs exist. Ashorocetus (talk) 05:13, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Would this picture [1] be acceptable to use? (after cropping, naturally)--Mr Fink (talk) 16:30, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Plus, I get the impression that the Meteor went extinct before any of its breeders thought to photograph it.--Mr Fink (talk) 16:32, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I get that impression too. I don't see how that image would add to the page, it seems to be based on Innes's illustration (which is the one I added) and doesn't reveal anything new. Ashorocetus (talk) 16:37, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Given as how Innes' illustration is now public domain, using his would be cutting the middleman out.--Mr Fink (talk) 16:45, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
The one there right now is his illustration. Ashorocetus (talk) 16:48, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Here is a photo of one, although not of show quality due to its short fins: https://www.google.dk/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com%2F736x%2F09%2F8a%2F52%2F098a523e679e11b19e3f416be56ba1e5.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.com%2Fpin%2F437623288771965133%2F&docid=md6D2ZxcxFRDDM&tbnid=gfScNi67v_SNjM%3A&w=736&h=572&bih=673&biw=1366&ved=0ahUKEwio4MfZuZXMAhWqBZoKHYtWA9MQMwgbKAAwAA&iact=mrc&uact=8 Variations like that are likely to arise from time to time, I suppose, and if someone choses to breed on it they may come back one day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.198.175.135 (talk) 10:31, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
