Axolotls are the cutest creatures in Minecraft that you can breed. They are also very helpful in underwater exploration. Here’s how to breed Axolotls in Minecraft.

Finding Axolotls in Minecraft

Locating Axolotls

To find Axolotls, head to lush caves introduced in the Caves & Cliffs update. Look for them swimming in the water. Axolotls come in various colors, with blue being the rarest, having a 1/2000 chance of appearing.

Taming Axolotls

You cannot tame Axolotls traditionally. However, they are not hostile. Use a bucket to pick them up and place them in your backyard pool. You can also use a lead to make them follow you.

Preparing for Breeding

Building a Breeding Pool

Create a small pool of water near your base for breeding. This prevents losing baby Axolotls in large bodies of water.

Collecting Tropical Fish

Search for Tropical Fish to breed Axolotls. Capture them using a bucket. They usually swim in schools, so bring enough buckets for a steady supply.

Breeding Cooldown

Axolotls cannot be bred quickly. In Java Edition, wait five minutes. In Bedrock Edition, wait one minute before breeding them again.
