Axolotls are large, adorable salamanders that are native to Mexico. Sadly, this species is critically endangered. Their popularity has risen thanks to Minecraft!
Some more background on these intriguing creatures:
Axolotls are long-lived, surviving up to 15 years on a diet of mollusks, worms, insect larvae, crustaceans, and some fish. Accustomed to being a top predator in its habitat, this species has begun to suffer from the introduction of large fish into its lake habitat. Natural threats include predatory birds such as herons (National Geographic online).
