Lungfish

The story of the Lungfish is certainly an interesting fish-tale. It has been described as a ‘living fossil’, with its ancestors dating back to the dinosaurs, well over 100 million years ago. Lungfish are a species of freshwater fish and are best known for retaining primitive characteristics including its ability to breathe air - the only fish species that can - and it does so with its lung! In fact, the lungfish can even wriggle over land and live over the age of 50. Many believe the lungfish is the missing link in the evolutionary chain - which saw fish crawl out of the water to become land-dwelling, backboned animals, like us humans!
