  • Axolotl come in 5 colors, out of which blue is the rarest with a 0.83% chance of spawning.
  • You can easily tame and breed axolotl by feeding them tropical fish from a bucket. If you breed a baby axolotl, it will always be loyal to you.


minecraft llama

  • You can find these calm and gentle animal mobs in savanna and mountain biomes.
  • Llamas do not harm players and generally do not harm other animal mobs as well.
  • They can be used to carry heavy loads across long distances.
