An Axolotl (you pronounce it Ax-oh-lot-ul) is
an amphibian, a salamander, and part of one of the three parts of class Amphibia,
which also includes the frogs and toads. Some people think that Axolotls and
other salamanders are lizards or reptiles, when they are not, amphibians are a
completely separate group of animals.
An Axolotl, aswell as other amphibians,
remains in its larval (never grows into an adult) form throughout its life.
This means that it keeps its gills and fins, and it doesn't develop the
protruding eyes, eyelids and characteristics of other adult salamanders.
Mexican Axolotls originate from Mexico and were
native to both Lake Xochimilco, and Lake Chalco. These lakes in Mexico do
not exist today and Axolotls are rarely caught in the wild, they are now
also on the CITES
endangered species list. Axolotls kept as pets and in labourites should
ensure the survival of the species.
So remember - an Axolotl is not a fish, its an Amphibia!
