The horror began – I learned in the same moment of believing myself prisoner in the body of an axolotl, metamorphosed into him with my human mind intact, buried alive in an axolotl, condemned to move lucidly among unconscious creatures.

The axolotls are also unique in their life cycle. I saw a rosy little body, translucent I thought of those Chinese figurines of milky glasslooking like a small lizard about six inches long, ending in a fish’s tail of extraordinary delicacy, the most sensitive part of our body. It’s that we don’t enjoy moving a lot, and the tank is so cramped – we barely move in any direction and we’re hitting one of the others with our tail or our head – difficulties arise, fights, tiredness.


Disconcerted, almost ashamed, I felt it a lewdness to be peering at these silent and immobile figures heaped at the bottom of the tank. The golden eyes continued burning with their soft, terrible light; they continued looking at me from an unfathomable depth which made me dizzy.

Espiaban algo, un remote sehorio aniquilado, un tiempo de libertad en que el mundo habia side de los axolotl. Pasa semanas sin asomarse. They were suffering, eveiy fiber of my body reached toward that stifled pain, that stiff torment at the bottom of the tank. However, through his obsession, he looses his human capacities and reverts into a lower state.

Obscurely I seemed to understand their secret will, to abolish space and time with an indifferent immobility. The lions were sad and ugly and my panther was asleep. Not possible that such a terrible expression which was attaining the overthrow of that forced blankness on their stone faces should carry any message other than one of pain, proof of that eternal sentence, of that liquid hell they were undergoing.

It had been enough to detain me that first moming in front of the sheet of glass where some bubbles rose through the water. No hay nada de extraiio en esto porque desde un primer memento comprendi que estabamos vinculados, que algo infinitamente perdido y distante seguia sin embargo uniendonos.

Oscuramente me parecio comprender su voluntad secreta, abolir el espacio y el tiempo con una inmovilidad indiferente. Lo supe antes de esto, antes de ser un axolotl. However, it is strange that a man who penetrates glass and merges beings with the axolotl would not want to know more about them. But that stopped when a foot just grazed my face, when I moved just a little to one side and saw an axolotl next to me who was looking at me, and understood cuengo he knew also, no communication possible, but very clearly.
