Today, its close relative is only 15-inches long. The breeding program of this extremely rare sea animal has been undertaken by the New York Aquarium.

The current population of this animal is fewer than 2,000. Their survival status is as bad as horseshoe crabs in Japan – facing the complete extinction within a decade at this rate. (Dr. Takeshi Yamada, Brooklyn, New York) —
