The axolotl is a curious creature native to Mexico. It is a type of salamander that does not complete its development in the adult phase – it stays a larva and never grows up.

Axolotl (Mexican Walking Fish) We have not had one for a long time. The first one was given to us by someone that played with it, so was very open and also interacted with our cat in some ways. The cat caught food like flies for it, and then jumped up to watch it enjoying to eat .
Smart Pinner: The axolotl is a curious creature native to Mexico. It is a type of salamander that does not complete its development in the adult phase – it stays a larva and never grows up. Me: it's a real life Pokemon that it is born with an everstone in their body. No scientist has ever been able to separate this rare stone from this Pokemon. No one has ever witnessed this mysterious Pokemon it's full evolved form.
The Mexican axolotl (pronounced ACK-suh-LAH-tuhl) salamander has the rare trait of retaining its larval features throughout its adult life. This condition, called neoteny, means it keeps its tadpole-like dorsal fin, which runs almost the length of its body, and its feathery external gills, which protrude from the back of its wide head.Found exclusively in the lake complex of Xochimilco, near Mexico City, axolotls differ from most other salamanders in that they live permanently in water.
Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) are neotenic salamanders meaning they fail to undergo metamorphosis, therefore retaining their juvenile characteristics such as their external gills (those feathery projections called rami) and aquatic habitat even when fully mature. They eat mollusks, crusteaceans, worms, etc. AND THEY CAN REGENERATE LIMBS! how cool is that?! They are native to two lakes in Mexico, one of which has been drained. Critically endangered.
Mexican Axolotl. My new favorite animal! They are so cool.

Irrawaddy Dolphins In The Mekong River. I hope we find a way to save these amazing creatures. They are relatives to the killer whale, and in Myanmar have been known to fish cooperatively with fisherman (chasing fish into nets). We need to figure out how to keep the planet habitable for us all.

Blow Fish 123zero: Fugu Puffer, pufferfish uploaded by menagerie
Fugu - balloon fish
The skin, liver, and ovaries of the fugu fish, or porcupine or puffer fish, contain the neurotoxin tetrodotoxin, which blocks the sodium channels in nerve cells, causing intense muscular tension, and eventually heart failure. For humans, tetrodotoxin has no known antidote. The fish does not produce the toxin itself; rather, it is generated by certain symbiotic bacteria therein. One minute amino acid mutation in the fish protects it from its own poison. And of course, it's a Japanese delicacy.

Weedy Seadragon! Absolutely love these marvelous sea creatures!
Leafy Seadragon, is a Threatened species, threatened by collecting for use in Chinese medicine and by habitat loss. Poor-poor sea dragon :-(
The Leafy Sea Dragon, closely related to the sea horse, survives by pretending to be a floating bunch of sea weed. It swims very slowly & its dorsal & pectoral fins are transparent. Predators likely don’t even know it exists! These little guys have weird reproductive habits; the female lays eggs into the male’s body via a long tube, and the male carries them until they emerge from his pouch. This is a threatened species due to habitat loss and to people collecting it for use in Chinese medicine.

The best sea creatures
Cuttlefish: Are marine animals of the order Sepiida. They belong to the class Cephalopoda (which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses). Despite their name, cuttlefish are not fish but molluscs. Have an internal shell (the cuttlebone), eight arms and two tentacles. Cuttlefish eat small molluscs, crabs, shrimp, fish, octopuses, worms, and other cuttlefish. Are sometimes referred to as the "chameleon of the sea" because of their ability to rapidly alter their skin color at will.
I love a cephalopod. Nature always has the best color combinations!
Cuttlefish can change colors, They're the magicians of the ocean.

The tunicates are very similar to sea squirts. They take water in through a large opening where nutrients are filtered out. The water is then expelled through another opening. Painted tunicates are about 3/4 inch long and commonly grow in colonies. They are found in translucent red, purple, and yellow colors. - Purple tunicates
Marine Life Painted tunicate colony (Clavelina picta). A tunicate is a sessile marine animal that feeds by circulating water through its tubular sac-like body. Painted tunicates live in clusters ranging from a few individuals to as many as 1000, each measuring approximately 15mm across.
