COEX Aquarium Axolotl Salamanders

Just before leaving the COEX Aquarium, we came across a tank of salamanders. More specifically, the Axolotl species in which the adults remain aquatic and gilled. I've always been fascinated by salamanders from my time at junior school where I questioned my science teacher and she had no idea what a salamander was.

These dudes are actually quite commonly kept as pets as well as used extensively in scientific research as they can regenerate most of their body parts (eek)!

Watch this video below to catch some gil-twitching action.
