VISITORS to the Blue Reef Aquarium can see a new addition - dubbed the Peter Pan of the aquatic world.

A clutch of eggs from a rare species of salamander have been hatched at an aquarium.

The tiny axolotl salamanders (Ambystoma mexicanum) are regarded as the creatures that never grow up because they never reach their adult stage.

The axolotls have recently been classified as critically endangered in their native Mexico where they are found only in the ancient water systems around Mexico City, but you can view them in the Southsea aquarium.

This is just one of the attractions at the Blue Reef Aquarium which can be found on Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Portsmouth.
