WHAT DOES OLM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

olm

Olm

The olm, or proteus, is the only cave-dwelling chordate species found in Europe. In contrast to most amphibians, it is entirely aquatic, and it eats, sleeps, and breeds underwater. Living in caves found in Dinaric Alps, it is endemic to the waters that flow underground through extensive limestone of karst of Central and Southeastern Europe, specifically the southern Slovenia, the Soča river basin near Trieste, Italy, southwestern Croatia, and Herzegovina. It is also occasionally called the "human fish" by locals because of its skin color, similar to that of white people, as well as "cave salamander" or "white salamander." In Slovenia, it is also known by the name močeril, which translates as "the one that burrows into wetness." It was first mentioned in 1689 by a local naturalist Valvasor in his Glory of the Duchy of Carniola reporting that after heavy rains the olms were washed up from the underground waters and made local people believe they saw a cave dragons' offspring. This animal is most notable for its adaptations to a life of complete darkness in its underground habitat.
