A large, ancient freshwater fish that is said to have existed for over one hundred million years. They have a unique body shape, with two whiskers extending out from their chin and a mouth that opens upwards in order to catch food on or above the water's surface. They sometimes jump over 1 m from the water's surface to catch bugs sitting on tree branches.
