Sturgeons don't breathe air, but their fossil record does go back 200 million years, so I think that qualifies them.

Not every ancient fish has adapted to breathe air, but quite a lot of them do. Arowana do not breathe atmospheric air either. Really it comes down to how far back you can trace to fossil records.

The Limpopo is supposed to have a river monster that appears during thunderstorms isn't it ?? - or is it another river and I'm getting confused in my extreme old age.

Very true, they date back 150 million years to the cretaceous period, will have to get their own thread going :D

when talking sturgeon , this is what comes to mind. this episode of river monsters is pretty cool. the place in alaska actually though it was some kind of lockness monster in the lake. but it turns out to probably be a sturgeon.
