It really is
This is an axolotl. Unlike other animals, axolotls are able to regrow almost any part of their body, that means not only limbs but much more complex organs like eyes, heart or even its brain. The more you know
@Pred, Sometimes, they'll accept spare body parts off other axolotl, too.
@Pred, they also were taken as pets in japan as "fish" but being amphibians they walked out of ponds... After eating every other living thing in the pond then moved onto other ones... Almost eliminated entire populations of aquatic animals in japan... Invasive species 101 the more you know lol
@Pred, however, they are extremely endangered and have a waste gland next to their neck that squirts poison. They pee poison and can regrow limbs. How the fvck are they endangered?!
@Pred, also, if a certain chemical is added to the water (can't remember which) they turn into salamanders (forever).
@The sexy priest, sadly, they're considered a delicacy in mexico and are being hunted
@Pred, ohhh gotcha
@Pred, well, if they can do that, should they not be being studied or something? If they can regrow limbs, shouldn't something in their DNA be able to help cure diseases or something? Or am I just being an idiot?
@bananaaaaa, you're not an idiot, of course they're being studied - it's an important study about stem cells
@Pred, oh yay😀
@Pred, this is true
@Pred, they also can receive limb, body, and head transplants!
@Pred, Some people keep them as pets, but sadly they're now endangered. :(
@Croaks, yeah, there are people who breed them out there. Finding them in the wild is extremly difficult though..
@Pred, Matthew Sontorrow anyone?
I'm just waiting for a Dr Shrunk comment...
@Pred, did you learn that from Matthew santorno?!
@Shnikosis, i've seen it in one of his videos but i've also watched a few documentaries
@Pred, if only we could do that
@Pred, Nahh I'm pretty sure thats Fizz, the tidal trickster.
@lamp of justice, SHARK
Looks kind of like a Wooper from Pokemon
@MCPO S117, it is also the creature they based mudkip on. (I think)
@Zombie hunter 2000, yea I thought it looked like mudkip at first
@Zombie hunter 2000, It is also the animal they based Dr. Shrunk on from Animal Crossing.
@MCPO S117, its a mudpuppy! or a waterdog. ITS A MUDKIP.
@MCPO S117, Both Wooper and Mudkip are based off the Axolotl, they're pretty cool creatures, you can make them glow in the dark. :)
@MCPO S117, it was the creature they based it on, and it was also used to create the axlhotls from Dragon Quest 9
If I saw this in real life I would totally freak out.
@I am a horse, I would too concidering it's a living mass of stem cells who can detach their limbs to give their arm to their mate if they ever lose one. Adorable, yet horrifying.
@I am a horse, my friend has one called Eric as a pet.
It's an axolotl
It's Dr. Shrunk!
Inject them with iodine and they metamorph into a different animal, it's like using an evolution stone on a pokemon
Is that a Wooper? *grabs a pokéball*
@Alcohol, Grabs masterball*
@Alcohol, it's a mudkip. You'll never see it in the wild.
It's a Mexican Walking Fish. The more you know.
Its called a mexican walking fish
@Kim Jong Nam, "The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka"
A wild wooper appeared!
Ah yes, "adorable"
I may have owned a few hundred of these things. Axolotls are neat. They can regrow body parts and they live a decent amount of time. As babies it is survival of the fittest. They eat eachother. They like in make in Mexico and that's it

I think I found Fizz
That's what she said.
It looks like Finn the human got turned into a salamander
So I heard you like mudkips.........
My high school biology teacher had some
I've got one of these. They are an awesome pet.
I can't. I'm blind.
@VegansArePeopleToo, if you're blind, then how the hell can you read the texts on a picture? Those text reader machines don't work for pictures. Know what I think? I think your pant is burning right now cuz you're a liar 👖🔥
If noly I could have one.
It looks like medusa
It's a baby mudpuppy!
