Axolotl Online is a resource for keepers of the ‘Mexican Walking Fish’ or the ambystoma mexicanum as it’s known in scientific circles. My name is Dan, and I built this site in hopes of educating people about these wonderful creatures. Contained within these pages you will find all the information you need about feeding, sexing, breeding and housing your axolotl. Please feel free to contact me with anything axolotl related or if you have any questions or comments.
Axolotls are fascinating creatures that originated from ancient lakes in Mexico. They are neotenic salamanders meaning they fail to undergo metamorphosis and retain their larvae-like aquatic state throughout their lives. Axolotls are studied in science labs for their ability to regenerate limbs and other parts of their bodies. Axolotls are an endangered species as their original habitats of Mexico continue to be extensively damaged by human populations.
