Title:
Australian Lungfish, (Neoceratodus forsteri), Dipnoi, Ceratodontiformes, Ceratodontidae, tetrapod
Lungfishes first appeared about 300 million years ago and probably represent the closest living link to amphibians. This fish normally uses its gills for breathing, but it can also breath air like land animals, however it is unable to live long out of water. It is likely that even though this tetrapod is extant, it has interesting associations to animals evolutionary transition from water to land.
