Could be a cute dogfish??

How could you not love this face?!?

This ADORABLE little face belongs to the African lungfish. It is one of the more advanced species of lungfish, with the Queensland or Australian lungfish being the most primitive (QLD species has only a single "lung", has lobe-fins similar to the coelacanth, and is the only lungfish species which can breathe through its gills - others gulp air as the gills are no longer efficient - therefore it is the only lungfish that cannot live out of water but must instead remain moist [other species may live for several months out of water in burrows etc]).

Another interesting thing to note, this African lungfish looks like Rosie, a King Charles spaniel...

*note the resemblance*

Everything is better with BACON

Western Gateway to the BACON!

I am, of course, referring to KEVIN BACON!!

The story behind this, despite bacon coming from delicious pigs and actually making everything taste amazing, is that over the past month there have been numerous sightings of the elusive "celebrity of Gidgegannup" ... and happens to have been posted on nearly all the signposts in the Gidge town-site along Toodyay Road.

So come to Gidge... you might meet a celebrity :)
