Axolotls will only appear in the pools inside Lush Caves. To find a Lush Cave you will need to look for the new Azalea tree on the surface.

Axolotls will act a lot like aquatic dogs and attack hostile mobs on your behalf. They'll fend off Drowned, Guardians, and even attack fish.


When taking damage they will play dead and activate regeneration powers, but that doesn't make them immortal so be careful!

What do Axolotls eat and How to Breed Them

Axolotls eat buckets of tropical fish and can also be bred with them. Simply give them to an adult axolotl and a new baby will spawn beside them.

To get a bucket of tropical fish, make a bucket with 3 iron and scoop up water on top of the fish to put it in the bucket. Give it to the axolotl and you are sorted.
