It likely gets its English name from its crest of long feathers which make it appear to be carrying quill pens behind its ears, as secretaries once did. A more recent hypothesis is that this is a French corruption of the Arabic saqr-et-tair or "hunter-bird." http://switchzoo.com/profiles/secretarybird.htm
Or the name may come from the Arabic “saqu ettair,” meaning hunter-bird, which translates into French as “secretaire.”www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Secretary_Bird

What's a year between friends? So if you agree, let's ignore this one then, and let me have a look at the previous answers of 'mites again.http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1 ... 600C289499A total of 24 coelacanths have been identified individually off Sodwana, while Tanzania has discovered 22 of these ancient fish since the start of the South African-led project (in 2002).http://www.dinofish.com/tanzania.html
On the night of September 8th, 2003, a coelacanth was netted at the island of Songa Mnara, off the coast of Tanzania. The fish was later identified at a fish market by one James Taylor (Not the singer!) It had been flayed for drying with the guts discarded, and has since been turned over to authorities. This was the first confirmed report of a coelacanth caught off Tanzania. Combined with the catches off Kenya and Mozambique, and the coelacanths seen at Sodwana, South Africa, it raised the question of permanent coelacanth colonies off the East African coast, now apparently confirmed. In August of 2004, 2 more coelacanths were caught off Kigombe, Tanga Region, Tanzania, in shark nets at about 70 meters depth, and since then roughly 21 more Tanzanian catches had been reported giving a total of 17-24 coelacanths caught in little more than 12 months.http://www.mythicalcreaturesguide.com/p ... ies?t=anon
