What is an axolotl?

An axolotl is an amazing creature, an amphibian species native to the lakes and canals of Mexico, particularly found in Lake Xochimilco and Lake Chalco. Known for its remarkable regenerative abilities, the axolotl retains its juvenile features throughout its life, a phenomenon known as neoteny. This means that it remains in its larval form even as it reaches adulthood, retaining its external gills and aquatic lifestyle. These fascinating creatures have become popular in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate limbs, spinal cord, and even parts of their brain. In addition to their scientific significance, axolotls are also kept as exotic pets by enthusiasts around the world, admired for their otherworldly appearance and intriguing behaviors.
