A small fish which can walk on the land and breathe air. It burrows in the mud when things get dry.

Lungfish are a type of aquatic vermin found in (and next to) tropical rivers, lakes, and pools year-round, and are a ready source of food when cleaned at a fishery. Lungfish are amphibious, and so are able to survive and move on land, where they are easy targets for cats and other vermin-eating domestic animals.

Some dwarves like lungfish for their gulping.

The lungfish is also well known for its playful nature and ability to fly. Bedazzled dwarves often see these creatures going up and down in the fresh air next to rivers. After conquering water and earth, it is only natural that these terrifying beasts conquer air.

It has been assumed that soon enough they will conquer magma and this day is said to be the day all dwarves will accept lungfish as their new, tiny, amphibious overlords.
