A Brief History of Axolotls

The Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) is a type of salamander native to Mexico. In nature, they can be found in lakes and streams all over central Mexico. The axolotl is famous for being one of few amphibians that can regenerate limbs, most famously its legs and digits. These regenerative properties have led scientists to take an interest in studying these animals as a means to repair human injuries.

History of Axolotls in Minecraft

The Axolotl was released on September 10, 2010. It was added as a tribute to Reddit user AmpersandAmps for winning Mojang’s Name That Fish contest and correctly guessing that new additions to Minecraft would be aquatic in nature.

Axolotls spawn underwater in lush caves biomes and when there is a clay block less than five blocks below the spawning space.

What Do Axolotls Eat In Minecraft?

Axolotls eat tropical fish. But keep in mind that Axolotls eat tropical fish and nothing else. If you want to feed an axolotl, you’ll need to use a bucket of tropical fish, not single fish you’ve caught.

How to Breed Axolotls in Minecraft

Adult axolotls can be bred with buckets of tropical fish. After breeding, a baby axolotl is spawned, parents cannot breed again for 5 in Java Edition or 1 minute in Bedrock Edition.

  1. Find two adult Axolotls, preferably in a confined location. If there is no water, remember that they can die after a few minutes.
  2. Feed each Axolotl a bucket of tropical fish to put them into a breeding mode, indicated by hearts emitted by the little creature.
  3. When both are in this mode and meet, a new baby Axolotl will spawn.

How To Tame Axolotls In Minecraft

Axolotls are like small underwater soldiers that the player can use to their advantage. However, Axolotls cannot really be tamed like other animals, only encouraged with a bucket of tropical fish. As long as the player has the bucket in hand, Axolotls will follow him and attack nearby enemies.

  1. Find an Axolotl, use a bucket of water to pick it up, and transport it. If the environment already has water blocks, you can use a regular bucket to get them.
  2. Obtain a bucket of tropical fish, which can be purchased in ocean biomes.
  3. Hold the tropical fish bucket for your Axolotls to follow and attack your enemies.
  4. Axolotls can also be transported using Lassoes.

All Axolotl Colors in Minecraft

Axolotls can be one of five colors: pink (leucistic, referred to as “lucy” in its texture file), brown (wild), yellow (gold), and two colors that don’t occur among real-world axolotls, cyan and blue.

The blue axolotl is by far the rarest color and has a 0.083% chance via the breeding of adults with other colors. So, if you’ve got your heart set on a blue axolotl, you’ll need to have a lot of patience and more than a bit of luck.

Blue (Rare) Axolotl Minecraft

Blue (rare) Axolotls cannot spawn naturally – the only way to obtain them is through breeding. When breeding two Axolotls, there is an approximately one in 1,200 chance that the baby produced will be the rare blue color.


The blue color is the only Axolotl color that is not based on real-life, as it takes inspiration from Pokemon’s Mudkip. In the probable cause that a baby is not blue, its color will correspond to one of the parents. The obvious foundation of acquiring a blue Axolotl is a lot of breeding.


I hope this little guide about Axolotls in Minecraft can help you better understand their behavior and features.
