Meet Methuselah, the oldest living aquarium fish

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Meet Methuselah, the fish that likes to eat fresh figs, get belly rubs and is believed to be the oldest living aquarium fish in the world.

Biologists at the California Academy of Sciences believe Methuselah the fish is about 90 years old, with no known living peers.

Methuselah is a 1.2-metre, 18.1-kilogramme Australian lungfish that was brought to the San Francisco museum in 1938 from Australia.

A primitive species with lungs and gills, Australian lungfish are believed to be the evolutionary link between fish and amphibians.
