Axolotl Care Guide: A Complete Guide to Caring for this Charismatic Amphibian, Characteristics, Housing, Diet, Tank, Set Up, Health, Maint

Carolyn Edmonds

The axolotl, often dubbed the "Mexican walking fish," is an entirely aquatic salamander indigenous solely to the lakes of Xochimilco and Chalco in Mexico. Diverging from the typical developmental trajectory of most salamanders, the axolotl remains in its larval state throughout its life, retaining its characteristic feathery gills and other juvenile features-a phenomenon termed neoteny.

Beyond their intriguing physical traits, axolotls exhibit remarkable regenerative abilities, capable of regrowing limbs and even organs such as their heart and certain sections of their brain. If you've chosen the axolotl as your prospective pet, this care manual serves as an ideal starting point for your journey.
