Where is the amphibious axolotl’s native habitat?

Quiz Question: Where is the amphibious axolotl’s native habitat?

The given options are as follows:

  • Mexico City
  • Salt Lake City
  • Machu Picchu

The correct answer is: Mexico City

Fact: This critically endangered salamander is mostly endemic to Lake Xochimilco near Mexico City. It can regrow limbs and even some organs, and never loses its ‘baby fins’—the fan-like gills around its neck that most salamanders lose as they mature. Human development around the lake has taken away vital axolotl habitat.
