Update: Axolotls have now released as part of Caves & Cliffs Part I.
Axolotls are a brand-new mob introduced in Caves & Cliffs Part I! As adorable as they are aggressive, players can look forward to plenty of fun features when they find what some call the "walking fish":
- Spawning - axolotls will spawn underground, in water
- Tempting & Breeding - Holding a tropical fish or a bucket of tropical fish can be used to tempt axolotls or to mate them.
- Attacking - axolotls will attack fish, squid, drowned, and guardians.
- Colours - axolotls come in a variety of colours, with blue axolotls having a small chance of spawning as a mutation when breeding 2 axolotls.
- Drying Out - axolotls can survive on dry land for a few minutes. After that, they will start to dry out and take continuous damage until rehydrated.
- Playing Dead - when taking damage, there is a chance that the axolotl will play dead. While playing dead, the axolotl will regenerate health and mobs will be unable to target them.
- Combat Regeneration - When a player kills a mob that the axolotl was attacking, they are rewarded with the regeneration effect and their mining fatigue is removed if they have it.
- Bucketing - axolotls can be picked up and carried around in buckets just like other fish!
