When this new mob was released in Minecraft, many players got charmed by its cuteness, particularly the leucistic type. If you are here, you probably want to tame one so that you can see these adorable creatures any time you want.
Thankfully, we’ve got you covered!
In this guide, we will show you where to find and how to tame an Axolotl in Minecraft.
Let’s dive right in!
Axolotl Spawn Location
Axolotls in Minecraft were supposed to spawn in one of the new cave biomes, Lush Caves. However, the said cave biome will not be arriving until later this year. With this, many players were left clueless as to where they can find these adorable creatures.
Currently, Axolotls spawn in any underground water source, given it’s in total darkness and below sea level (Y-63). Their spawn location should also be within five blocks of any stone-type block, and there should be a solid block above their spawn location.
Taming Axolotl in Minecraft
Technically, Axolotls can’t be tamed, but they’re not hostile towards any players. With this, you can easily scoop them into a bucket with ease. If you wish to, you can carry Axolotls around with you or re-home them in a makeshift pond or lake near your base.
You can also attach a lead to an Axolotl if you don’t have a bucket in hand. However, keep in mind that it will die after five minutes of being out of water. If it’s raining, you can carry around your Axolotl for as much as you want.
Breeding Axolotl in Minecraft
If you manage to get two adult Axolotls together, you can breed them using buckets of tropical fish. Simply feed each adult Axolotls with tropical fish, and you should see red hearts indicating that they’ve entered the mating state.
The baby Axolotl will get the color of one of the two adult Axolotl randomly. It will also take 20 in-game minutes for a baby Axolotl to reach an adult state.
You can repeat this process for as much as you want.
How to Get Rare Blue Axolotl?
Axolotls in Minecraft come in the following colors:
- Wild (brown)
- Lucy (pink)
So far, blue Axolotls are the rarest type and has a 0.083% chance of spawning naturally or by breeding two adult Axolotls. If you want to get the rare blue Axolotl, you’ll have to keep looking for it or breeding adult Axolotls.

Why do my axolotls keep dying in Minecraft?
