Intriguing Facts about Axolotls:
- Home Sweet Home : Axolotls come from a special place in Mexico called Xochimilco ( sow · chee · meel · kow)
- . It's like a watery maze with many canals and lakes.
- Stay Young, Stay Water-Logged : Most animals change as they grow, but axolotls stay in their water-loving baby form all their lives!
- Magic Trick : If an axolotl loses a leg, guess what? It can grow it back! They're like superheroes of the animal kingdom.
- One-of-a-Kind : You can only find wild axolotls in Xochimilco. That's their only natural home on the whole planet.
- Always Happy : Axolotls look like they're always smiling. Some people call them the "Mexican Walking Fish", but they're not fish.
- Color Wonders : Wild axolotls are mostly dark-colored. But some, because of special breeding, can be pink, gold, or even white with black eyes.
- Feathers? Nope, Gills! : Those frilly things on their heads? They're not feathers, they're gills. Axolotls use them to breathe underwater.
- Breathing Buddies : Axolotls have lungs, but they like breathing through their skin and gills more.
- Yummy in the Tummy : In the wild, axolotls eat small fish, tiny water creatures, and wiggly worms. At home, they like special food pellets.
- Need Help : Sadly, there aren't many axolotls left in the wild because their home is getting dirty and changed by people. Many people are trying to help save them.
Ancient Stories : Long ago, people of Mexico told stories about axolotls. They believed an axolotl was a god named Xolotl who turned into this creature to hide.
