Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) are one of the best-known Mexican salamander creatures of the tiger salamander group. Unlike other members of its class, axolotls are part of the group of sea creatures that must live in water because they cannot change. When other salamanders complete their metamorphosis, they adapt to life on land, unlike axolotls. An adult axolotl (2 years old) is usually 25 cm tall. However, they can measure between 15 and 45 cm long. However, you can hardly see axolotls over 30 cm. Although axolotls are physically similar to a typical salamander, they can be distinguished from salamanders by the gills on the sides of their heads. Note also that these interesting creatures do not have eyelids.

We continue our list with the red-lipped batfish. Found 30 meters or more in the sea on the Galapagos Islands, this interesting looking fish can grow up to 40cm in length. Not being a good swimmer, the batfish must use its pectoral fins to walk on the surface of the sea. This interesting fish, which prefers to walk rather than swim, is also known to sit on the seabed. In adult bats, the dorsal surface turns into a spiny appendage and thus manages to attract their prey. Isn’t it interesting to think about the evolution of this interesting red-lipped fish!
