Description

Polypterus is a genus of ancient fish known as "bichirs" or "dinosaur eels." These fish are characterized by their elongated bodies, multiple dorsal finlets, and lung-like swim bladders, which allow them to breathe air. They are often found in African freshwater habitats and are considered living fossils due to their primitive characteristics and evolutionary history dating back over 100 million years. Polypterus species are popular in the aquarium trade for their unique appearance and hardy nature.
