Features Of The Axolotl

The average Axolotl is 10-23cm long

They are endangered because the lake where they live is being poluted very badly and they are about to go extinct and if we dont stop the polution they will go extinct.

They live up to 10-15 years

They eat worms, insects, small fish, and just about anything else that can fit inside there mouth and swallow whole, including other salamanders. In the lab,axolotls are fed brine shrimp, California blackworms (lumbriculus varigatus ), and salmon pellets.

The axolotl is an unusual species of salamander which retains its larval features, such as gills, and remains aquatic throughout its life.

Instead of forming scar tissue when wounded, the axolotl can regenerate tissue at the wound site and even re-grow missing limbs.

Most axolotl fail to undergo metamorphosis, but if its habitat dries up this species can metamorphose into an adult form. This is an example of a metamorphosed Axolotl.

some people think its a fish but it is not it is a type of salamander. Some people know the axolotl as the water monster.
