Leucistic Axolotl - Ambystoma mexicanum

(0) No Reviews yet


Axolotls are among the most adorably alien-looking pets around. They have become pop culture icons in recent years through memes and, most recently, the Minecraft video game. As a result, interest in them has increased exponentially. However, their care is extremely demanding and specific and any potential owners must be ready to meet their needs.

Although they are sometimes called “walking fish”, these little creatures are actually a fully aquatic species of salamander. In fact, all baby salamanders are often called “axolotls” in the same way that young dogs are called “puppies” but the true “pet” Axolotl is the Mexican Axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum. The natural Axolotl is dark brown but captive-breeding has led to other varieties like albino, leucistic, black or piebald variants. In addition to the pet trade, Axolotls are important research subject. They have the ability to regenerate lost limbs and organs, and have also been used to research genetic traits and neurobiology.
