"...can you name another fish that hasn't evolved in the last 450 million years and still lives today?"

Well, since you bring it up, I can. It's the Coelacanth. (Actually, it lived about 400 million years ago, but pretty close anyway.) It's a pretty cool fish, here is a link about them:

They thought it died out 65 million years ago, but they caught it in a fishing boat in 1938.

This is why I believe that there are more species out there that we thought were extinct. We just never know when an 'extinct' animal might pop up!
