Is there such thing as an Axolotl?
Yes. It is correctly classified as Ambystoma mexicanum. Another comon name for it is the "Mexican Salamander".
The Mexican walking fish, also known as the axolotl is a pretty interesting animal. Some facts of the axolotl are: 1. The axolotl is not even a fish, it is an amphibian aquatic salamander, but people call the axolotl a "fish" anyways. 2. The axolotl is carnivore and eats small prays like worms or insects. 3. The axolotl's body can grow up to 30 cm. 4. The axolotl can regenerate, for example, if a limb…
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 ground.
