    History:

    Although they may not look it, salamanders are an important component of our research in medical fields. Salamanders possess the capability to completely regrow and regenerate damaged or lost limbs. Although scientists still haven't narrowed down the exact mechanisms that salamanders use to do this, discovering it could lead to a plethora of incredibly beneficial medical procedures and capabilities.

    Although they live in a wide range in the eastern United States and Canada, Salamanders are very hard to spot. They move around mostly at night, spending their days under rocks and inside logs in their forest homes. They grow to 7 inches (18 cm) long.
