Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Last weekend we were at Hatton visiting the Enchanted Christmas Kingdom to see Father Christmas. We also had time to walk around the farm and one of the warmest places was in with the amphibians. Here you could find Star who just couldn’t tear herself away from this Axolotl. I thought it was a little weird looking with it’s pale pink flesh and gills and tiny lidless eyes. But Star could see it’s beauty and was totally captivated.
on Instagram kindly shared this rhyme from MAD magazine.
I’ve heard it said of Aristotle, he kept a pet: an axolotl, coloured green – a sort of mottle, in a kennel made of wattle. But its baby epiglotl couldn’t cope and made it throttle.
Google also tells me that if you have an Axolotl as a pet it will eat other aquatic animals and that they can grow up to 25cm and maybe even bigger. I think this one must have been nearly 25cm.
Have you ever seen an Axolotl? Do you think this one is beautiful?
