Scientists from the Institute of Vertebrate Biology in Brno have discovered a new species of fish in the African savannah. The fish, which has been named Nothobranchius Kadelka after the well-known Brno scientist Jaroslav Kadlec, is particularly rare for its extremely short lifespan, consisting of only several weeks. The Nothobranchius inhabit pools created in the savannah in Mozambique during the rainy season and their lifespan is adapted to the fact that the pools dry up very quickly. The scientists hope their studies of the fish may indicate how various chemical substances effect aging in humans as well.
