South American lungfish, Lepidosiren paradoxa. Is the single species of lungfish found in swamps and slow-moving waters of the Amazon, Paraguay, and lower Paraná River basins in South America. Its a air-breather and the sole member of Lepidosirenidae family. The gills are greatly reduced and essentially non-functional in the adults. The young become air-breathing at about seven weeks. Juveniles have external threadlike gills very much like those of newts. From Amazonas. Composite imageSouth American lungfish, Lepidosiren paradoxa.

West African lungfish, Protopterus annectens. Breathig air at the surface. The African lungfish is an example of how the evolutionary transition from breathing water to breathing air can happen. Lungfish are periodically exposed to water with low oxygen content or situations in which their aquatic environment dries up. The swim bladder of other fishes, that serves as a lung. The lung contains many thin-walled blood vessels, so blood flowing through those vessels can pick up oxygen from air gulped into the lung. Mozambique, Gorongosa National Park.

Marbled lungfish, Protopterus aethiopicus. Can live in riverbeds and other areas that have no rain for portions of the year due to their ability to estivate or burrow in the ground to form an air bubble and breathe out of a hole in the cocoon thus formed. The undifferentiated alveolar pneumocytes and the double capillary system, observed in Protopterus, in general appear to characterize the very primitive lungs of the lower air-breathing vertebrates.

Australian lungfish, Neoceratodus forsteri. Swimming. It is one of six representatives of the ancient air-breathing Dipnoi (lungfishes) that flourished during the Devonian period. They can breath air with single dorsal lung, used to supplement the oxygen supply through the gills. Queensland, Australia Digital compositeAustralian lungfish, Neoceratodus forsteri. Swimming.
