Unique and Critically Endangered Axolotl

Charles Yallowitz shares some information about the interesting axolotl, and some pictures and videos.

So, what are some axolotl facts?

  • They have a rare condition called neoteny.  This means that they don’t lose their larva features when they become adults.
  • The larva features they keep include feathery exterior gills and a rear dorsal fin.
  • Axolotls still grow lungs, which they use to get air from the water’s surface.
