Have you ever had a pet? Have you had an exotic pet such as snakes, spiders, rodents, etc. Well i want one and it is very cute. They are called Axolotls. I am about to tell you why I should have an axolotl, and I have 3 reasons why.

Feeding axolotls is really easy because According to scienceonline.tki.org, “you can feed worms, insects, freshwater shrimps, and tadpoles, and more convenient foods, such as raw beef meat (trimmed of all fat), liver, beef or lamb heart, and even cat food.” This means axolotl’s have a variety of foods they can eat which makes them easy to feed.

If you don’t like touching them you only have to when you clean their tank. According to scienceonline.com, “Handle axolotls only when it is necessary, such as when cleaning the tank.”. You don’t have to constantly love them like dogs or cats. This means that axolotls are easy to take care of.

An Axolotl can live for a very long time, up to about 6 years, sometimes even longer. Livescience.com says that “In captivity, the salamanders live on average for 5 to 6 years, but some have lived for up to 17 years.” This means that I can have an axolotl for a long time and bond with them.

Those are all the reasons i should get a pet axolotl . Thank you for reading and if you want an axolotl you can go here.
