- A small fish which can walk on the land and breath air. It burrows in the mud when things get dry.
Lungfish have gills as well as a lung, and so are able to survive and walk on land, where they are easy targets for cats and other vermin-eating domestic animals.

The lungfish is also well-known for its playful nature and ability to fly. Several members have seen lungfish in the air above cascades. After conquering water and earth, it is only natural that these terrifying beasts conquer air. It is only reasonable to think than soon enough, they shall conquer fire as well, and we will see lungfish (but not !!lungfish!!) in magma.
