They are called coelacanths, a primitive order of fish once thought to be extinct. The first live specimen was caught off the coast of South Africa in 1938, 24 years after the events depicted in the movie. However, it is entirely feasible that Whitmore, a collector of rare artifacts, could have gotten a hold of a few specimens before anyone else.

According to the DVD audio commentary, he was blinded when the Heart of Atlantis is activated and sinks the city. If you notice, his eyes are normal when he tells young Kida to look away in the opening sequence.

One of P.T. Barnum's famous quotes is, "There's a sucker born every minute." Rourke is referring this quote regarding how the crew have chosen to supposedly withdraw from a lucrative deal and seem to be siding with Milo.

What was the Leviathan?

The Leviathan was speculated to be a mythical sea-monster to frighten the superstitious which Milo quoted from the book of Job from the Bible .

In actuality, it was a very powerful Atlantian warship. Before Atlantis was sunk, many Leviathans were once part of the Atlantian navy. The producer of the film stated that only one of the many Leviathan's survived the "Great-flood" and the last remaining one, which was seen in the film, was tasked with guarding the secret entrance to Atlantis.
