Hi Herbie, you might have better luck posting your question in the axolotl help thread, but that looks like you are going to have to take the little guy to the vet.

I'm pretty sure that's a veterinarian issue. You'll have to determine what the spot is before you can treat it. I've never seen anything like that.

Unfortunately we will never know as gordita passed away the next day
With the black spot falling out but pulling a bunch of vital organs out along with it ( sorry for details :I)
And gordita died shortly after
Upon further inspection we took the the foreign object to the bet and she said she had never seen anything like it but was actually most likely a liver or kidney that had become infected and swollen through the skin :S
