Axolotls

Common Name: Axolotl

Scientific Name: Ambystoma mexicanum

General Information: Axolotls are critically endangered species of salamander, related to the tiger salamander. There is an estimated 700 - 1200 left in the wild. They originate from the banks of Lake Texcoco in the mountains of central Mexico.

The lifespan is only 5 - 6 years in the wild, but 10 - 15 in captivity! Adult size is about 12".

They need at least a 20 long aquarium, with low filtration, and no heating. It is vital the temperature stays cold, with the ideal range being 60F - 64F. Give them plants to hide in and provide a sense of security and help prevent stress.

Diet: In the wild, axolotls eat snails, worms, crustaceans, small fish, and small amphibians. In captivity, they can eat a variety of brine shrimp, small strips of beef or liver, earthworms, bloodworms, tubifex worms, other frozen fish foods, and commercial fish pellets.

Terms of agreement: Please note, all sales are final. You are purchasing a companion, not a product. This is a big commitment, and we ask you to do the research and be fully committed before checking out. Also, once an animal is sold or preordered, they are considered unavailable. This means if you purchase and change your mind, it can potentially cost the animal a fur-ever home, as even with preorders, quantity is limited, and once the number is reached, other potential adopters will be told no. Due to this, animals are not refundable or transferable.
