Loading...
Hello readers! my name is Chloe Qing Chen. Have you seen an Ambystoma Mexicanum or an Axolotl before? (ACK-suh-LAH-tuhl) Legends say, the axolotl is the Aztec god of fire and lightning, Xolotl, which disguised himself as a salamander to avoid being sacrificed. But these Mexican amphibians are impressive enough on their own, with the ability to regenerate lost limbs and stay “young” throughout their lives. BUT! They are critically endangered and we need your help to save them, only 50 - 1,000 left in the wild. Let me teach you all about the axolotl and why the axolotl population is going down, please stay and listen so you know how to spread awareness and stop killing axolotls
