You may have had a close encounter with one of these recently. Do you know what it is?
Did you know what last week’s object of the week was?
Well done if you recognised our Axolotl from the photo last week.
Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) are a critically endangered species of Salamander that are only found in one lake in Mexico.
Unlike most other amphibians they can reach maturity without undergoing metamorphosis. They retain their external gills and have the ability to regenerate limbs!
