Arapaima are native to the Amazon and Essequibo regions of South America. They are the largest freshwater scaled fish in the world, reaching nearly 10ft and weighing over 400lbs. Their hard, corrugated scales can reach the size of poker chips. But perhaps the most fascinating, arapaima breathe air. They possess lungs and breathe through their mouth, an evolutionary advantage in their often oxygen-deprived rivers.
