The granular salamander or ajolote (Ambystoma granulosum) is a species of mole salamander in the Ambystomatidae family. It is found only in Mexico. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marshes, and ponds. It is threatened by habitat loss and overcropping along with the scaling of their skins.

Distribution

Ambystoma granulosum is endemic to a small area of central Mexico close to and just to the north west of Toluca in Mexico State, at an altitude of around 3,000 m (9,843 ft). Its population size is unknown.
