Mexican water dragon sounds proud and even a little frightening. Actually, this threatening nickname is given to axolotl. This small creature about 30 centimeters long is a neotenic salamander larva, that means it reaches sexual maturity without transforming into an adult animal.
The habitat of axolotl is Lake Chalko and Lake Xochimilco. The rapid city growth in the region results in reduction of the natural population, but small Mexican dragons are extremely easy to breed in captivity, so this species is not endangered. The axolotl attracts attention with its unusual appearance and high scientific value. This amazing creature can regenerate a tail, gills and even limbs!
You can see the axolotl almost in any aquarium or oceanarium of Mexico, do pay attention to it! Moreover, they are even found in home aquariums belonging to the fans of exotic animals.
