These salamanders snack on each other (but don’t die) – Luis Zambrano

Discover the extraordinary regenerative powers of the axolotl, a salamander native to Mexico and one of science’s most studied animals.

Axolotls are one of science’s most studied animals. Why, you ask? These extraordinary salamanders are masters of regeneration: they can flawlessly regenerate body parts ranging from amputated limbs and crushed spines to parts of their eyes and brains. So, how do they do it? And what other secrets are they keeping? Luis Zambrano explores the baffling biology of the axolotl.
