Lake Zirahuén is a small endorheic lake in the Municipality of Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacán state of west-central Mexico.Lake Zirahuén is a small, deep mountain lake, with a sandy bottom that is partially covered with mud.At times Lake Zirahuén has been part of an open and continuous hydrological system formed by Lake Cuitzeo, Lake Pátzcuaro and Lake Zirahuén, which drained into the Lerma River. Today, like lakes Cuitzeo and Pátzcuaro, it is a closed basin, although ecologists consider it a sub-basin of the Lerma-Chapala basin.The Zirahuén Allotica (Allotoca meeki), a Goodeid fish, is endemic to lake Zirahuén.
