An solitary amphibian and is an endangered animal, the axolotl is a rather recognizable animal and is a pet to many. They are known for staying in their larval stage unless utterly necessary to go beyond that stage and for their regenerative abilities.
Due to its regenerative nature, the axolotl teaches many lessons relating to healing. It teaches when there are times for healing personal health. Axolotl also teaches that at times healing can only occur when growing in some ways, as growth may be unnecessary and not great for what needs to be healed.
Axolotl also gives note of how sacrificing youth may not be the wisest idea to take on and that seeking out is not a bad idea if it is needed.
