❃ What's the secret behind the axolotl? The Mexican salamander holds all kinds of mysteries; even scientific communities find it hard to catch up on the creature. However, it's been known that the secret to their powers is in the axolotl's cells.
❃ Axolotls are neotenic creatures, meaning they never lose their gills and fins throughout their life. Their jaws are always growing, which can be harmful when they get into each other’s mouths as youngsters, but as they mature into adults, their eyes and jaw sizes meet in the middle of their faces. They have unique cells that allow them to regenerate lost limbs, tails, jaws, parts of organs, and even parts of their brain.
❃ Axolotls aren't the biggest animals on the list. In fact, they can only reach up to 1.5 feet in length as adults. But, you know what they say, small things come in big packages—and this little guy is as interesting as the biggest animal you'll see in the wild.
