The axolotl is a species of Mexican mole salamander whose larvae fail to undergo metamorphosis, and thus, the adults remained gilled and aquatic. They originated from the lake that underlies Mexico City and are often used in research due to their curious ability to regenerate themselves.
Having been called the nastiest and most disgusting creature in the sea, the hagfish lives deep below the surface of the waves. When it gets hungry, it attaches itself to a passing fish, bores its way through the skin, and then consumes the fish from the inside out.
Also known as the “dog bear” due to its small stature and extremely long tongue, it is found in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia.
Star Nosed Mole
Inhabiting the north-eastern United States and Canada, the star-nosed mole has 22 miniature tentacles at the tip of its snout that it uses to forage for food.
Coming from Ankara, Turkey, these hairy rabbits were popular pets among French royalty in the 1700’s. They are often bread for their immense wool coats.
