The Axolotl was the animal form of the Aztec god Xolotl (twin of Quetzalcoatl). The two brothers traveled to the underworld to retrieve some bone relics. They tricked the goddess Mictlantecuhtli, and brought the bones to the light of the world above, and with the help of the gods from these ancient bones humans were born.
