Seen in green, pink, brown, yellow colours, Axolotls appear in the Lush Caves biome in the Caves and Cliffs update. The Lush Caves biome bring unexpected, beautiful greenery to the deep underground areas with azalea trees growing above. Start digging underneath their roots and it will eventually take you towards the Axolotl caverns. You will Axolotls here, swimming underwater.
Behaviour of Axolotl
Axolotls are a generally neutral aquatic Mob, but they will attack other Mobs and the player as well if provoked. The player can tame the Axolotl if he manages to pick it in a bucket. The player can then set these creatures free in more common aquatic environments or use them in marine adventures to help fight against Drowneds, Guardians, and Elder Guardians.
