Ward's® Live Mexican Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum)

WARD470177-356 WARD470177-354
These unique salamanders keep their gills and stay fully aquatic even into adulthood, making them ideal subjects for embryological and developmental studies.

  • Large embryos with a clear coating makes them ideal for observing development
  • They exhibit "neoteny", keeping their larval characteristics into adulthood
  • This amphibian never leaves the water
  • Able to regenerate most body parts
Widely known for their regenerative abilities, which diminish (but don't disappear) as they age, axolotls are studied in the biomedical field to understand the genetic triggers for cellular repair.

These specimens are laboratory reared, as they are nearly extinct in their native Mexico due to degradation of their natural environment.

Their color will vary from albino to brown.
