The fascinating Mexican salamender or better known as the Axolotl is a neotanic salamender species with amazing wound healing and regeneration capabilities. Lacking a usual metamorphosis to a terrestrial animal, they stay at an aquatic and highly regenerative adulthood. Coming from a long way, they are now avaliable in MEDITAM facility (one and only facility holding axolotls in Turkey) and it was off to a good start with a Tubitak Project on a xenograft study.  The species offers a wide range of studies from cellular basis of regeneration to more systemic evolutionary biology studies.
