Also according to Wikipedia, the name for Bonobos (formally known as Pygmy Chimpanzees despite being a seperate species) comes from a mispelling. [0]

TIL that axolotl are neotenic.[0] There are rare instancea of axolotl going through metamorphosis to become terrestrial. However, if this occurs after sexual maturity the axolotl will not survive more than one or two years.[1]
