Kabang jumped in front of a motorcycle last year to save the lives of two little girls in the Philippines -- but she lost her snout in the process.
Despite the grave injury, Kabang showed no signs of suffering, so her owner decided not to put her down. Kabang soon learned how to eat with her paws.
Still, her wounds weren't quite healing properly.
Enter the Internet: This month, thanks to $20,000 in online donations, Kabang is undergoing reconstructive surgery at UC-Davis.
The axolotl is a kind of salamander found in Central America, but they kind of look like they come from a glaxay far, far away. Ok so they aren't really extra-terrestrials, but what do you squeeps think - are they creepy or cute?
