The human body is truly amazing! We can see, smell, hear, walk, think, and taste. Plus, we have the ability to heal small cuts and bruises all by ourselves, like when we scrape our knee. However, when it comes to bigger injuries, we need help from doctors. They can work wonders, but if a finger gets completely cut off, it can only be saved if it's sewn back on quickly. It's even harder with a whole arm! Our bodies can't naturally regrow a whole finger or arm on their own. That's where the axolotl and zebrafish come in. Dr. Judith Konantz, a biologist, will explain how these amazing creatures are connected to our ability (or inability) to regrow body parts.
