The axolotl, or Mexican salamander, is known as a walking fish. However, it is not a fish at all. It is actually an amphibian. Axolotls have gills outside of their bodies, which have a fringed appearance.
Like most other creatures, an axolotl will flee when in danger. When cornered, they will bite/snap at their assailants.
Well i think that because it stays in its larve form all it's life.
You need to check your state wildlife website to see what exotic pets are lawful and unlawful to own. If it doesn't specify on the website, contact them. It depends on what state you live in. I know you can own them in my state, MA.
Axolotls sleep underwater. They are the only amphibians that stillhave gills as adults.

yes a axolotl can eat a goldfish
An axolotl eats at night
Test your tank water for the presence of ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates which should be 0, 0, and less than 20 respectively. If it's a colour fade, lethargy, and loss of appetite, this could be a water quality issue. Double check to make sure that it is not a shedding issue or protozoan infection...
Never mind, I found it. It's an amphibian.
They can be tan, brown, black, white, gold and even glow under black light! The last three (white gold and glowing) are bio-engineered.
No, they'll pinch the poor thing's head off!
Okay,just so you know,I'm 10.Hey, I've done alot of research on Axolotls,so I would trust me if i were you.The reason I did the research is to get my own Axolotl.I own one ,it's name is Silkie.Its a baby.You can feed them bloodworms,but DON'T ever,ever,ever feed them any worm you find in the ground...
Protest river garbage dumps in coastal cities at the Gulf ofMexico. The chemicals in the trash that people throw in the riverpoison the little guys and kill them dozens at a time.
You should remember how majestic this creature can be.
males normally weigh 125-130 grams and females are normally 170-180 grams
Just one, Ambystoma mexicanum .
You can get them in white, black and grey ones in the wild.
Not really they slowly paddle along in the water
If you have ever heard of it-there is a place called Cherry Lane. It sells varias things like plants also normal supermarket things and there is an aquatic center there. they sell different kinds of fish, frogs and Axolotls. If you cant see any ask a member of staff. I got mine from Cherry Lane in...
No there not
axoltls are carnivors and shouldn't eat fruit and vegetables.
If you enjoy fish. It's a rather low-maintenance animal. You can't hold it. You have to be careful with its water levels. You need to remember to feed it. And that's about it.
It's still endangered. However, it hasn't been listed on the "Endangered Species Act", just on IUCN's Red List.
The axolotl is endangered because of the draining of its habitatlakes, the pollution of the bodies of water in which it resides,and the introduction of nonnative fish, such as the AfricanTilapia, which eat its eggs and food.
The male axolotl will swim around and deposit 5-25 spermataphores(packets of sperm) before then trying to lure a female axolotl tocollect them. The female picks up the sperm (from one or more ofthe spermataphores) in her cloaca. A cloaca is an opening in thefemale axolotl. After a few days or even...
Out of its cloaca (under the tail).
It depends where you live. In New Jersey, they are completely illegal, as well as California. Other than that, yes you may own them (matter of fact I live in New York and have 3)
It depends. Axolotls can be kept with other axolotls AS ADULTS, and in fact prefer it due to the fact they are very social. When they are not adults, however, they will kill each other when kwpt with each other. There is a simple rule of thumb for axolotls: since they are at the top of their natural...
Yes they eat any kind of meat they can fit in their mouth
It is not a river but a system of lakes, known as "LakeXochimilco".
No anywhere between 18-22 deg c
yes as long as the axolotl is too big to get eaten
The average lifespan of an axolotl is 10 to 15 years. Adults generally range in length from 6 to 18 inches.
1. Too warm or too cold in the water. The best temperatur is between 16-18 celsius (62-65 fahrenheit) 2. Too much water flow from the pump. Set the pump on the lowest flow or even better, remove it and clean the tank more often. 3. Don't use gravel, use sand instead as they tend to swallow...
like most living things walking fish have character. i used to have two of them one would run away from the fish and the other nearly killed itself trying to eat it. the one i have now doesn't pay atention to the fish. so its up to you if you want to put a fish in with it or not :)
Well you can kinda see for yourself. If the pictures didn't come out then just search 'axolotl' into google images it comes up with loads of photos though lots are just the same image but edited. It's got a weird head.
yes. you can hold them out of water. but you have to keep them wet all over. its very important their skin doesn't dry out. don't keep them out of water for too long though.
I think what you're referring to are the gills.?
They are, in fact, very similar to Frog Spawn and are generally laid upon plants. They look like Brown/Black 'dots' coated with a clear membrane - though a lack of pigment in the egg would suggest that one parent was an Albino Axolotl. Sometimes, though, pigment appears later in the development.
axolotls are not bugs .but they are realated to salamanders if you are looking for a pet similar suggest a newt , but axolotls are very cute.
yes, axolotls do only live in the water since it only has gills
Yes they do.They are carnivores and they eat worms and insects though they only eat small fishes.
Of coarse not!
Axolotls are born then turn into a tadpole then when they have reached 18-24 months they are sexually mature and can reproduce by mating.
an axolotl is an amphibian. axolotls are amphibious, they breathe through gills but can survive on land.
nowhere iknow of sells hem, you'll have to make one, there are patterns on the internet
People don't know about it because it isn't a comon species
yes they are carnivores
Lake Xochimilco is an endorheic basin. It is the original home of the axolotl, which is now a critically endangered species. An endorheic basin has no outlet and collects water from the surrounding area.
Well the smallest axolotl is your dads pen1s and the biggest axolotl is your mums cameltoe
the axolotls don't even bite at all.
Their top speed is 17 km/h (10 mph).
French also uses the Nahuatl word axolotl to describe it.
Axolotls have four legs that they use for swimming as well as crawling. They can re-generate these up to eight times, and although sometimes at crooked angles, they usually have full flexibility and usage.
Axolotls in the wild are a brownish colour, which helps them to blend in with the riverbed that they live in. The white axolotls with red eyes are mutant albinos and are very rare in the wild. They find it very hard to camouflage.
Axolotls eat 5oz. a day or less.
yes axioltls breath air well my does so dont fill the tank to muchthat it cant come up to breath
Ajolote ( aho-lote ) Wikipedia pronounces it: Ax-oh-lot-ul and it is a Mexican Salamander!
No, this isn't a good idea. The betta might nibble the axolotl's delicate gills, and a big axolotl could swallow a betta, but the most obvious reason why the two are incompatible is that they prefer very different water temperatures. Bettas are tropical fish that require relatively high temperatures...
By trying to prevent pollution of the Waters where it lives. Bypreventing the introduction of invasive species.
An axolotl is an amphibian, but was argued to be a fish as it keeps it's gills throughout it's life. Wikipedia has the full classification from kingdom to species.
10-15 years If looked after properly, they can live for 10 to 15 years. They can live up to 30 years of age.
yes they do because they live in it all though fill a tank about halfway to ensure it can breath
Actually, axolotls are amphibians,not fish. So I think they might get along with frogs and newts etc. Hope I helped you!
they have to or else the larvae will die
Water. Axolotl is the immature form of the salamander ambistoma.It's of special interest because it can become sexually maturewithout transforming into an air-breathing creature (the conditionseems to be related to a lack of thyroxine). This is an example of neotony .
Axolotl need another one to reproduce, therefore meaning sexual.

No, after about a month and a half they leave their children and let them go.
Kindom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Amphibia, Order: Caudata, Family: Ambystomatidae, Genus: Ambystoma, Species: Ambystoma Mexicanum They are mole salamanders that live in Lake Xolchimilco, Mexico but are owned widely in captivity.
They are a semi-transparent salamander with red frills they use to breathe.
It is alright if your axolotl swims around at the top of theirenclosure. This may however signify that they need more oxygen andthat you should clean the tank more often.
Their limbs are not strong enough to support them out of water.
Yes, everything mates. Axolotls usually mate around spring, when the water is coolest in their natural habitat
Mexican axolotl live in the old olyimpic part of water
is axolotl a vertebrate or an invetebrate
Because the river in Mexico where all Axolotl originate from and where the highest population of Axolotl live has been partially destroyed because it was flooding too often into the villages around it so they filled it in. This killed many axolotls and destroyed the main part of their breeding...
Fifteen pounds to twenty-five pounds, but a tank cost about 500pounds.
I just want to start saying all this text and errands may be intimidating, but once you get everything set up it's really quite easy. Well, first you should get a tank thats about 11 gallons per axolotl. Second, you need tank dividers if your getting multiples and they're not adults, because...
the latin name for the axolotl is ambystoma mexicanum .
No. An axolotl is an amphibian (like a frog).
The axolotl also known as the Mexican walking fish is VERY rare because most of them have died in the open because they are so small and harmless :)
