Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Axolotl

Axolotl (ˈaksəˌlätl)

The axolotl is a critically endangered Mexican salamander. It is unique in that it keeps its larval form throughout life. Basically it is the Peter Pan version of salamanders.

Their major threat is due to land drainage and the introduction of predatory fish into their habitat. There is thought that they are extinct in the wild.
