This is NOT what they grow up to be! They are hatched and grow larger they DO NOT CHANGE THEIR APPERANCE! THIS IS AN INJUSTICE TO AXOLOTLS! they are neotenic so THEY STAY IN LARVAL FORM! The first two are albino, the second one is wild. They are both cute!
Axolotl is closely related to the tiger salamander. Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a "walking fish", it is not a fish, but an amphibian. The species originates from numerous lakes, such as Lake Xochimilco underlying Mexico City.
Gurl. Design artist. Vancouver. I used to post a lot more art but now it's mostly silly shit with art thrown in every couple pages. Currently into Harry Potter/LOTR. Shippy stuff sometimes. All the time. I jump fandoms a lot.
This creature is an Axolotl or "Mexican Walking Fish". It is an amphibian, more specifically, a salamander. Axolotls have become popular as exotic pets. In captivity, they are housed in an aquarium and can have a range of colours.
