Stratford Butterfly Farm welcomes new residents for Easter!

The Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is welcoming some new residents in time for the Easter holidays. A number of Mexican Walking Fish, called Axolotls, have taken up residence at the UK’s largest Butterfly Farm. Resembling a cross between a fish and a lizard, the Pokémon character “Wooper” has been designed to look like an Axolotl! They are unusual amphibians as they do not complete metamorphosis. If, on rare occasions metamorphosis is complete they become Mexican Fire Salamanders. Rather than developing lungs and taking to land, they remain aquatic and have external gills.
