MetadataShow full item record
At Las Farolas, the newest tourist destination in Frontera Verde Drive beside Tiendesitas on Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City, one of the top freshwater fish attractions is the Australian Lungfish which has been observed to be seldom moving around and usually staying on the aquarium floor. Also known as the Queensland Lungfish, Burnett Salmon and Barramunda, the Australian Lungfish, among Australian fishes, is generally regarded as the most unique and interesting, due to its strange features, restricted distribution and evolutionary lineage. It was first described in 1870, creating frenzied interest among the scientific community.
