Lungfish

The lungfishes are a type of fish that can breathe air, and have limb-like appendages instead of fins.

Lungfish are generally believed to have evolved away from regular fish early, and their taxonomy is still in flux; some authors put all lungfishes in a subclass Dipnoi. However, there seems to be agreement that there are two orders.
