The amazingly cute and cool Axolotl!

My favorite kind of axolotl are the leucistic and albino colored. These salamanders are light pink in color with black or pink eyes.

Most salamanders go through metamorphosis, but not axolotls! They keep their gills and stay living in the water.

Axolotls use their sense of smell to find worms, little fishies, and bugs to nibble on.

These cute animals can live to be about 10 to 15 years old.

Sadly they are "critically endangered" due to habitat destruction. :(
