A superb vintage illustration of prehistoric Ceratodus Lung Fish. The German name for the animal was "Der Molchfisch Ceratodus". Ceratodus (Greek for "horned tooth") was a lungfish dating back about 230 million years. Lungfish are best known for the ability to breathe air, and are ancestors of land based animals. Fossils have been found around the world in the United States, Argentina, England, Germany, Egypt, Madagascar, China, and Australia
This is a fine art print of a lithograph from the early 1900s by Heinrich Harder, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
