These fish have survived the dinosaurs. They were already in existance 60 million years ago. Polypterus breathe through lungs and their young have external gills found otherwise only in newts and salamanders. Bichirs and reedfishes have always attracted attention from biologists yet this the first popular book to present all the known species in one volume. All the type material has been re-examined, several species are described as new and one illustrated in life for the first time.
Aqualog Polypterus is a photographic catalogue and guide to the biology and care in aquaria of all the known species.
