    Cool whip! I used to work for a tropical fish wholesaler and they would occasionally bring in the 2" babies. Sooooo cute!

    I think that lungfish are very neat.
    I have seen them before in fish stores and always wanted to get one. It's a shame they get so big.

    Nice lungfish! A cool thing about them is after they hatch they have the same type of gills as a salamander larvae,I think there more like an amphibion then a fish Lol.
