Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) Axolotls are salamanders known for their extraordinary regenerative abilities. They can regrow lost limbs, spinal cord, and even parts of their heart and brain, making them a subject of extensive scientific study for potential applications in regenerative medicine.

Starfish (Sea Stars) Starfish have the ability to regenerate lost arms or even their entire body from a single arm. This remarkable regeneration is possible because they have decentralized nervous systems and can store vital organs within their arms.

Planarian Flatworms These tiny flatworms can regenerate their entire bodies from just a small fragment. They are used in research to study regeneration and stem cell biology.

Mantis Shrimp Mantis shrimps have incredible eyesight, capable of seeing polarized light and a vast range of colors. They can also regenerate their limbs if they get injured during fights.

Gecko Geckos can regrow their tails if they lose them as a defense mechanism. This regrown tail might not be as perfect as the original, but it still serves its purpose.

Horseshoe Crabs Horseshoe crabs have blue blood, which contains a substance called Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL). LAL is crucial for detecting bacterial contamination in medical equipment and vaccines, making horseshoe crabs essential in the pharmaceutical industry.

African Spiny Mouse Unlike most mammals, African spiny mice can regenerate their skin, fur,  and even cartilage. They are actively studied for insights into tissue regeneration.

Honeybee Honeybees produce a substance called propolis, which they use to seal their hives and protect against infections. Propolis is rich  in antioxidants and has  been explored for its potential health benefits in humans.
