When you think of an Axolotl, you probably think of the pink Axolotl first. Minecraft, however, has a whole rainbow of Axolotls for you to lure in, fight with, breed, and collect. Overall, eight different textures have been used for the Axolotl; however, only five are currently present in the game. Two are older versions of current in-game colors, and one is an unreleased color that may make a future appearance. Let’s take a look at every Axolotl color in Minecraft.
