Description

La salamandra ajolote es un anfibio que está en peligro de extinción. Actualmente su hábitat son los canales de Xochimilco. Yo lo encontré en un Museo que está en la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México llamado "MUAC".
Era un día soleado y caluroso, pero éste anfibio se encontraba en un lugar templado y cerrado, puesto que estaba en una pecera grande.
La salamandra que fotografié medía 22 centímetros de largo.
Sus ojos eran muy pequeños y no tenía párpados, su boca era alargada y sus dientes eran diminutos.
En las imágenes que tomé podemos apreciar que en la parte lateral izquierda-derecha de su cabeza tiene un par de 3 branquias por lado.
Y en sus patas frontales tiene 4 dedos, mientas que en las traseras tiene 5 dedos.
Para finalizar, en las imágenes aparecen de igual manera pequeños peces, que sirven de alimento para la salamandra ajolote.

Description from Wikipedia

The mole salamanders (genus Ambystoma) are a group of salamanders endemic to North America, the only genus in the family Ambystomatidae. The group has become famous due to the presence of the axolotl (A. mexicanum), widely used in research, and the tiger salamander (A. tigrinum, A. mavortium) which is the official amphibian of many states, and often sold as a pet.

No range data available.
