Mexico: this breeder is trying to save axolotls from extinction

This mexican creature can regenerate and resist cancer, some even say it was an Aztec god. But today, the axolotl is on the verge of extinction. Here is how this man is trying to save them.

    I almost got a few locally bred ones. Decided on angelfish, instead. They're such adoravle little amphibians, though. It is heartbreaking, but sadly, people will do nothing to reverse the destruction of their habitat. At least they'll live on in captivity.

    Thank you,I hope we can get off of gas and clean our environment enough for them to return.

    I love axolotls! I used to breed them here in Oz, well more like I had a pair and they bred and them I become a sudden axolotl parent. They needed lots of care. They don’t turn into salamanders here in Oz in captivity- and my understanding was only in their home turf in Mexico in a few lakes and places do they still complete their cycle. So odd and wonderful that they breed in the nymph please not the adult phase making metamorphosis not imperative to survival unlike most amphibious creatures.

    axolotls are really important. If I had a home I’d be breeding and conserving them as well. They’re beautiful animals I’m gonna research into them more. IDC what y’all think. We’re getting them

    As a kid I always loved finding salamanders. Where I lived we had little red ones. I think they are rare to extinct now. I haven't seen one for years though I did find spotted newts when I lived in Maine. So distressing that humans are responsible for so much destruction. It is wonderful what this man is doing for the axolotl.
