Ambystoma mexicanum (Axolotl)
The infamous axolotl is a 'neotenic' salamander, an animal that becomes sexually mature without metamorphosing from tadpole to salamander. Instead, it simply gets larger, while retaining a fish-like taik and the external gills. Axolotls are available in two main varieties, grey and pink, but other varieties exist.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Axolotls are predators that hunt by smell. They will eat virtually anything meaty, including insect larvae, small fish, earthworms, etc. They do not need to be fed every single day.
While they are very hardy, axolotls do need a certain amount of care. The water should be treated with dechlorinator and filtered as well as with any large fish. Warmth is required, though not quite so much as for a tropical fish. They don't like bright lights, and the aquarium should have a mix of open and shary areas.
Do not mix with fish. Small ones will be eaten, and large ones nip at the gills and toes, causing infection.
