I did a project on this where i monitored the regeneration of back limbs in an axolotl. It grew at a much faster speed than the regular limbs.

I believe the reason why is because all the energy goes into replacing the limb ASAP.

This video actually addresses how regeneration transpires with regard to a severed limb.

I have a female albino axolotl that has two feet in one limb. I don't know if it was damaged and regenerated that way, or was congenital. It is an odd look, though.

Very cool! I have a faculty friend that works with them. He will get a kick out of this!

you can surgically remove limb buds from them and reattatch them wherever you want and they will grow
on their head, back etc

You gotta love axolotls. I had one that got the worst of a 3 day weekend. All four of its legs were eaten off back to the body. I put it in a tank by itself and all four legs grew back like normal.
