What is an Axolotl?

Axolotl - Ambystoma mexicanum

It is a neat little water creature.

Axolotls (ACK-suh-LOT-uhls) are amphibians. They are a type of salamander that stays underwater its whole life, and never ventures up on the land. These guys are extinct in the wild, but they are well established in the pet industry. 'Lotls are very easy and fun to keep as pets. Learn more about them and maybe pick one out to keep!
