How at Bakkum,at the Dutch coast, a Nahuatl-word resounded...
3 girls, about age 12, with a dip- net near a pool in the dunes, catching amphibian lifeforms.
One of them shouts at her father:
"Hey Dad! Look here a... whatyoucallitagain.. axolotl or something.!!"
She points at the baby watersalamander in the bucket.
The axolotl is a kind of salamander that lives in Mexico and the US.
Being mature, it still looks like a baby-salamander....(so it doesn't undergo the normal salamander-metamorphosis, but then again : apparently normal isn't so normal)
from: atl (-water) and xolotl (-servant), servant of the water..
