Transcript of The Axolotl
By Alec Dauma and
The Axolotl is an amphibian living mainly in lake Xochimilco, a lake in Mexico.
It is also found in Lake Chalco, also in Mexico
Axolotls have confused scientists
for years because of their ability
to regenerate certain body parts
such as a leg, tail, eye, or heart.
Where does it live?
What does it eat?
What eats it?
Male axolotls usually reach maturity at around 6 to 12 months.
Females mature later on.
Breeding season ranges between the months
of December and June. 24 hours later the female
can lay up to 300 to 1,100 eggs.
Although, they are also
being killed off by...
... their habitats being paved over.
... filling in the lakes.
Currently there are 700 to 1,200 left in the wild.
They live in the water temperature ranging between 60 to 64 degrees.
The tilapia are nonnative fish introduced to the lakes the axolotls live in by people in Mexico.

regrow their limbs, brain, or heart
at times,when their habitat is threatened, grow legs to walk on land
adapt to their transportation due to the fact that they don't transform out of larva to an adult
change color due to the pigment in their skin
And the stalks behind their skin take in oxygenated water
