In the wild, axolotls eat worms, small fish, small amphibians, snails, and crustaceans. In captivity, you can feed your axolotls foods such as earthworms, small pieces of liver or beef, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or ready-made fish food such as trout pellets.
But did you know that axolotls don’t have teeth to chew their food? While feeding, axolotls open their jaws wide and suck food through interlocking rakes that close the gill as the food is sucked into the mouth.

Axolotls can regrow a lost arm and undisturbed can live virtually forever. But, also, sometimes they mistake the rocks for food and then die. Life is strange and short, even when you are essentially immortal. The best place to see these strange creatures is in the waterways of Xochimilco, Mexico City.
How long does it take for Axolotl to regenerate its lost limbs?
The time it takes for axolotls to regenerate a limb depends on factors such as age and body size. A juvenile axolotl is able to regenerate faster than an older axolotl.
A young axolotl can regrow a lost limb in 40-50 days. Good nutrition coupled with excellent water conditions will certainly help in the process.
Should axolotls be kept in pairs?
It depends on a number of factors, including the size and personality of the axolotl, the environment in which it is kept, and the axolotl’s interactions with other axolotls. In general however, axolotls should not be kept in pairs as this can lead to aggression and territorial disputes.
Axolotls are a species of salamander that has undergone a process called amnesia, which means they have lost the ability to regenerate lost body parts. While it’s not yet known for certain whether axolotls are truly immortal, there is evidence to suggest that they may not experience the same levels of mortality as other animals.
What axolotls drop when killed
Axolotls are a creature in Minecraft that doesn’t drop any loot when they die. However, if you kill an Axolotl, you will get one experience point.
There are several known types of axolotls, which can be distinguished by their different colors and patterns. The most common colors are brown, black and albino, but they can also be gray or pale pink. All axolotls have external gill stalks and a caudal dorsal fin, which are the result of neoteny (the retention of juvenile characteristics into adulthood). The wild population of axolotls is estimated at 700-1,200.
