ZEBRAFISH or ZEBRA DANIOMahendra Sonawan©Jürgen Berger
The zebrafish, or zebra danio, is a tropical fresh-water fish not  only popular in aquariums around the world, but in research tanks as  well. Danio rerio plays an important role in teaching us more about  evolution. These two-day old larvae will turn into adult fish in three  months. Scientists have found that zebrafish have the ability to  regenerate fins, skins, the heart and the brain during the larval  stages.
