Good morning all you may have noticed there was no Monday post this is because I was pretty unwell throwing up, extremely tired and felt like shit.
Ok time for this weeks creature and it is the Axolotl know what this is, how about if I say it is the Mexican Walking Fish.
However, it isn't really la fish but an amphibian and like the frog and the toad they breath through their gills having three on each side of its head, just above the legs and skin.
However, unlike other amphibians they don't develop past the larval stage which is the tadpole phase in frogs, if they did they would become salamanders.
They are native to Mexico and considered critically endangered, in the will they live for between 5 & 6 yrs but in captivity they can live up to 15yrs.
They are able to heal almost any injured body part, regenerating arms,legs,tails,skin and even major organs such as the heart, liver and kidney.
