Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum)

L'axolotl Aussi rare que stupéfiant, l’axolotl est une salamandre endémique du Mexique. Cette créature amphibie, que l’on retrouve souvent à l’état albinos dans les élevages d’amateurs, est aujourd’hui menacée d’extinction dans la nature. Les talents de l’axolotl sont étonnants : il parvient à se reproduire sous sa forme larvaire, sans avoir besoin de muter en adulte sexué. En outre, cette salamandre est très étudiée pour sa capacité à régénérer ses organes endommagés.
