Axolotls are a species of underwater salamander that are at the brink of extinction in the wild, yet are often seen in labs and as exotic pets. Axolotls are used as model animals in scientific research for their amazing ability to regenerate lost limbs and even bits of vital organs.
Powers and Stats
Origin: The Real World
Gender: Varies; can be male or female
Age: Varies; can live up to 15 years
Classification: Fully aquatic salamander; Amphibian
Powers and Abilities: Small Size (Type 1; most commonly found to be somewhere around 23 cm long), Underwater Breathing (Type 1), Regeneration (Low-Mid, possibly Mid; can regenerate lost limbs within months and even parts of vital organs such as the heart, brain, and spinal cord within 30 to 60 days), Enhanced Senses (Axolotls use their sense of smell to detect prey), possibly Biological Manipulation (Axolotls exhibit neoteny, or the act of reaching sexual maturity before metamorphosizing)
Attack Potency: Below Average level (In the wild, they were predators of worms, insects, and small fish)
Striking Strength: Below Average Class
Durability: Below Average level
Range: Below Standard Melee Range (centimeters)
Standard Equipment: None
Weaknesses: As they grow gills instead of lungs, axolotls cannot survive outside of water. Their regeneration is rather slow, meaning it'd still be easy to kill an axolotl. As pets, water temperatures outside an acceptable range (16-18 °C) will cause stress, which leads to disease and death.
