Superstars of Regeneration, The axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum, is a paedomorphic aquatic salamander. This species was originally found in several lakes, such as Lake Xochimilco close to Mexico City. 

Salamanders show the highest diversity in being able to regenerate limbs, tail, heart, spinal cord and jaw and in addition can repair lesions in the brain and heal wounds without forming scar tissue.

At the Eugene Bell Center here in Woods Hole, resident Scientist, Karen Echeverri, uses these animals to try to unravel the axolotls secret regeneration recipe.
