timflachphotography These cute Salamanders known as Axolotl are of great interest to science because it can regenerate limbs and parts it's own brain. Wish I could do that!
The Aztec people saw a manifestation of the god Xolotl in this little creature, who led souls into underworld alongside the setting sun. 
IUCN Red List Status: Critically Endangered

@timflachphotography They are here in Austin, and you are correct, they are critically endangered. The shocking news is that a fast growing community upstream is attempting to discharge 995,000 gallons per day of treated wastewater. The chemicals in this water will kill off these amazing creatures. @protectourwater is working hard to stop this.

@timflachphotography May we have your permission to repost this? It’s a beautiful image! This salamander lives in the limestone crevices and cracks within our unique Texas Hill County aquifer system; we are working diligently to protect this species, and our water.

@kasif_cocuk you can buy them online and they make great pets, I have one of my own. That’s the only way they’re not endangered in general, just in the wild.
