The Axolotl

Happy Weird and Wacky Wednesday!! 

I pray your day is filled with lots of learning!!

Have you ever heard of an Axolotl before? They are so cute!! Joey wants to tell you guys all about this amazing aquatic amphibian! They are actually aquatic salamanders! They stay looking like babies their entire life. They come in a range of colors and have a unique ability to regrow their lost body parts. Isn’t that weird but amazing that they can regrow certain body parts when they lose them? Yes, that is right when they lose a limb, they can regrow it back in as little as three weeks. When the limb is lost nearby cells travel to the injury site and the regeneration process starts. We live in a very fascinating world! There is so much we can learn from the world around us!


Here is a list of some facts about the Axolotl:

1. They can live up to 15 years.

2. They can regenerate certain body parts.

3. They are native to Mexico's Lake Xochimilco and Lake Chalco.

4. Axolotls are a Critically Endangered species.

5. They stay looking like babies their entire life.

6. Axolotls can grow up to 18 inches long.

7. They eat worms, small fish, and many other things that live in the water.

8. Axolotls do not have eyelids so they sleep with their eyes open.
