Axolotl Toy Figure
The Axolotl is an unusual type of salamander that is able to reach adulthood without losing its gills and transitioning to a partially land-based lifestyle like most other amphibians. Instead it remains fully aquatic. In the wild Axolotls are highly endangered, but they are popular in the pet trade, where they are captive bred.
Scientific Name: Ambystoma mexicanum
Characteristics: This Axolotl toy figurine represents a color morph commonly found among pet Axolotls, known as leucistic. Similar to albino, this morph features a pinkish skin, dark pink gills, and black eyes. With its feathery gills, ridged skin and translucent tail fins, it could be mistaken for the real thing. In the wild, Axolotls are a greenish brown color, but in captivity they can be selectively bred for various different desired colorations.
Size: This Axolotl toy figure measures just over 7 inches from the tip of its snout to the point of its tail, and stands about 1 1/2 inches off the ground.
The Axolotl figure is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
