Haha, now that I have your attention, I would like to ask if you guys will please look at the photos below and tell me what sex my axolotls are. Yes, I have seen the pics on axolotl.org, and I'm still stumped.
Dave from Ed's was kind enough to look at some other pics of these axies for me a couple of months ago, and he thought that they were both female. However, the pics that I sent him were not as good as the ones below, and the white one's cloaca looks SO MUCH bigger than the black one's. In fact, the white one's cloaca looked even bigger last night, before I took these pics, and it even seemed like it was gaping open (eeew!).
The white one is over two years old, and the black one is approximately seven months old, so the black one may not have reached its full sexual maturity yet, which may explain its smaller cloaca.
Anyway, I've done my research on this issue and I'm still not sure what to think, so if you guys would help me figure it out, I'd really appreciate it.
Without further ado, here are the promised pornographic photos:
A comparison between photos A and D probably best illustrates the discrepancy between the sizes of the two animals' cloacas.
Thanks in advance for viewing these tasteless photos :)
