<font color="119911">Jacob, do you know that Mexican Walking Fish is another name for Axolotl?.
Atilla, what were you feeding your axie? It looked like fish of some kind.
p.s Naughty naughty, have you changed the gravel to sand or river stones?</font>

yeah, I know people use that phrase to wrongly describe them, and that pet stores marketing them as so called "Mexican walking fish" also tell people that they like being petted and to come out and walk on the carpet! Which they like neither.

<font color="119911">Weird. I've never had a pet shop tell me they like to walk on carpet? Hmmm...
I don't think that name is a phrase. For some that name is easier to remember, especially for children. I used it as a child, and not once did I ever put one on the floor to watch it walk just because I called it a Mexican Walking Fish.
They can also be called Mexican Salamander and Mexican Axolotl. But why don't we just call them by their scientific name; Ambystoma mexicanum.
So, Atilla, you have some very cute Ambystoma mexicanum.</font>

I have never heard of the phrase "Mexican Walking Fish" arround here. Usualy when people have no idea what an axolotl is I tell them they are like a mudpuppy or like a permanant baby tiger salamander. If you said something like Mexican Walking fish arround here people might think its some sort of cocktail or a racist term.

Maybe Mexican Walking fish is an Australian thing. I dont like that name, kinda like how I used to get peeved when I was 7 when people refered to Bottlenosed dolphins as porpoises or Flippers.

I call them axolotls myself, or axies for short. But for people who don't know about them, I usually explain they are kind of water salamanders... That usually clears it Click the image to open in full size.
