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."

I must watch way too much discovery channel or something because that doesn't look unusual at all.  Neither is limb regeneration for those types critters

Inchoate: axolotl?

And here I thought Ix invented it.

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.

I used to be an axolotl, I did what axolotls do, I breathed through gills, my skin was mottled, I know you don't believe it's true.

My girlfriend is playing that game next to me right now. It is so confusingly compelling.

Quite frankly, penis snakes are the best amphibians ever.
