The most recent mob to be added to Minecraft is the axolotl, which debuted in the Caves expansion.
However, feeding them can be challenging because they will only accept buckets of tropical fish. Axolotls won’t accept standard Tropical Fish from players of the Minecraft game.
According to a dev diary, Mojang stated that this was deliberate because axolotls prefer live fish to dead ones in the wild. Players will therefore need to make some buckets out of iron and go out and catch some Tropical Fish in order to feed their Axolotl.
- In Minecraft, axolotls only eat buckets filled with tropical fish.
- To get a bucket of tropical fish, you’ll need to use a water bucket on a tropical fish.
- Quickly feeding two axolotls will cause them to mate and produce a baby axolotl.
Where and how to find Axolotl in Minecraft
Axolotls are cunning creatures that live in water and will attack numerous things that enter it. They can also reach land, but once there, they won’t last for very long.
They can play dead, which is another consideration when dealing with them. Even if you think you have eliminated one of them, there is a good chance that it is only acting and is actually recovering its health so it can attack you once more. Sneaky, huh?
They come in a wide range of colors, but if you see one that is blue, you should be aware that it is uncommon and that there is only a one in 1200 chance that you will.
If you see water with blocks above it that is below y: 63, there is a good chance that there will be some Axolotls there because that is where you will be looking for them.
They can be caught using buckets, and an interesting fact about them is that they prefer eating live fish to dead ones. They spawn while in Creative mode using the /summon command as well as with a Spawn Egg or an Axolotl Bucket.
Another unfun fact is that they are now an endangered species due to Asian and African carps, which eat their young and deplete their food supply.
