earthlynation: The axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), also called the ajolote, is an aquatic salamander that even has gills. This strange looking fellow is used extensively in scientific research due largely to its ability to regenerate most body parts as well how easily it can be bred. They are found mostly around Mexico City and are near extinction due to that city’s urbanization.
