The Mexican tetra (Astyanax mexicanus) is a small, freshwater fish native to Mexico, Texas, and New Mexico. Depending on environment, the species has two distinct forms: a surface dwelling form and a cave-dwelling form (also known as the blind cavefish). In the latter, as the fish matures, skin grows over the eyes and ultimately impairs vision. More...
