Fun take on the #biology of the Demogorgon on #StrangerThings !

Demogorgons develop front limbs first. Interestingly, that’s how some #salamanders develop too!

#Salamanders in the family #Ambystoma (aka mole salamanders) develop their front limbs first as well!

Here is a young marbled salamander #larva showing off its front limbs & frilly external gills. Image
But for #frogs we see the back limbs developing first.

Cool #FrogFacts :

The back legs are visible as they develop on a #tadpole , but the front are hidden under a layer of skin (the operculum).

As the tadpole develops, they BURST out through the skin!

Aliens style 😉
