Axolotl? Yup. Regeneration and stopped metamorphosis are not interesting facts for anyone who has heard of the little guys. However, what may be a more interesting fact is the injection of iodine will force them to continue metamorphosis, as will gradually forcing into a terrestrial environment by limiting water.

Herbert West, Reanimator smiles knowingly...


"I wandered lonely as a clod,
Just picking up old rags and bottles,
When onward on my way I plod,
I saw a host of axolotls;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
A sight to make a man's blood freeze.

Some had handles, some were plain;
They came in blue, red pink, and green.
A few were orange in the main;
The damnedest sight I've ever seen.
The females gave a sprightly glance;
The male ones all wore knee-length pants.

Now oft, when on the couch I lie,
The doctor asks me what I see.
They flash upon my inward eye
And make me laugh in fiendish glee.
I find my solace then in bottles,
And I forget them axolotls."
