The Teugelsi Bichir, like other African bichir, have a lung and gill so they can survive for short periods out of the water. The Teuglesi bichir is a newly discovered species found in the Cross River in Cameroon in 2004. These bichirs have a pretty crosswork pattern and grow to 30 inches in the wild - probably about 24 inches in the aquarium.
