My daughter is OBSESSED with Axolotls. She has been for a couple of years now, so much so, that we had some specieal Axolotl enamel pins made! She designed them herself and they are so cute! She is always asking more for Axolotl related things. So I thought I would put together a quick list of her favourite Axolotl Coloring Pages!
What are axolotls?
The axolotl, is part of the salamander family. Axolotls are unusual among amphibians in that they reach adulthood without undergoing metamorphosis. Instead of taking to the land, adults remain aquatic and gilled. SOURCE They have a unique characteristics, in that they can regrow limbs, if they have lost one. They are very rare and are only found in a certain parts of Mexico.
I think with the advent of minecraft adding the minecraft axolotl… axolotls have become more mainstream! Which is fabulous, as they are such amazing creatures. No time like te present to make sure, we finally have a cute paper axolotl craft to celebrate! (We do have Minecraft bookmarks here focusing on creeper and the minecraft pig! I haven’t yet made a minecraft axolotl bookmark specifically. Watch this space!).
On to our quick collection.
