Korito and the Axolotls

BFF!
Korito is the name of one of our new pets. He is one of four axolotls in our old fish tank. They were given to us by the HNI teacher, Kelly McIlroy, after she visited our class with other teachers from HNI. She loved Fish n' Chips and told us about her axolotls that were breeding. One thing led to another and we got some new pets! Thanks, Kelly!

I have named one of the pets, Korito, after one of the Seven Whales in the legend which we retell for the production. Ben plays this role. Korito sounded a little Mexican to me, and another name for axolotls is Mexican walking fish: "Australians and New Zealanders frequently refer to the Axolotl as the Mexican Walking Fish, though the Axolotl is not a fish but an amphibian, a salamander." (Axolotl.org)
Just hanging out, waiting for a name...

Now, we have to name the other three. Here are the contending names. You can vote on the poll on the top right side of our blog. As there are three to be named, you can choose multiple answers. The axolotls already have a blog, run by Kyra and Maia. Check it out!
  • Captain Cabbage
  • Liquorice
  • Dorito
  • Taco
  • Toothless
  • Randy



The final results: Toothless, Liquorice and Randy join Korito!
