The lungfishes are a type of fish-like creature that can breathe air, and have limb-like appendages instead of fins.

Lungfish are generally believed to have evolved from other fish early, and their taxonomy is still in flux; some authors put all lungfishes in a subclass Dipnoi. However, there seems to be agreement that there are two orders.

Australian Lungfish

Order Ceratodontiformes

Order Lepidosireniformes

Lungfish is also a musical band.
