Watch a salamander form …

This is such a cool video. It’s called Becoming, and it’s by Jan van Ijken. If you have six minutes to watch something amazing, you’ll see a timelapse video of a salamander egg (alpine newt – Ichthyosaura alpestris) turning into hatchling tadpole. If you only have two minutes, watch the first minute and the middle from about 3:30 to 4:30 because that’s when it first starts to really look like a salamander and it begins to move.
