  1. ichyostega

    Ichthyostega is an extinct genus of amphibians from the Late Devonian period, around 365 million years ago. As one of the first tetrapods (four-legged animals), it is often considered the missing link between fish and land-dwelling animals in evolutionary history, marking the transition from aquatic to terrestrial life. It possessed both lungs and gills, and its skeleton displayed adaptations for both swimming and walking. The term "Ichthyostega" means "fish roof", referring to its fish-like characteristics.
