Axolotl

Axolotl

(Science: zoology) Ambystoma mexicanum, a type of salamander native to Mexico and the western united states which spends all of its life underwater.

even as an adult animal, the axolotl retains many larval features, most notably its external gills: as a result the axolotl is an excellent example of the phenomenon of neoteny. The axolotl also has four legs and a tadpole-like tail and is an endangered species.

Re: ?{REGENERATION}? Is it possible ???!!

Why not sequence the axolotl, the starfish and others, and compare it to our own? There is definitely merit in examining oxygen intake. Ologists of some sort measured the oxygen level in a bubble encased in amber and found it to be ...
