Question: Have you heard of the Olm? I think that it is an amazing creature. How can it do what it does?

Hi buzzers…no I hadn’t until I looked it up on Google just now…why do you think it is such an amazing creature?:)

I just wonder how creatures that live in the dark all their life can respond to light in such an amazing way.

Hi buzzers…it seems that the Olm has eyes when it is born but they then shrivel up a bit (nice technical term!) as they get older so it looks like it is still born with the ability to live in light. A nice example of adaptation by a species in the environment it lives in. Thanks for that, I’ll have to show my daughter tonight! 🙂
