Polypterus ansorgii

Polpyterus ansorgii

We received only two specimens of this bichir – the rarest of all bichir species. The currently imported specimens are 15-20 cm long. The species can reach a maximum length of about 80 cm and thus represents the largest of all known Polypterus species. There appeared a German article on the species in the current issue of Aqualog/Terralog News, which will be availble in English language in Spetember.

For our customers: the fish have code 162403 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in very limited numbers only!
