I honestly think that's the deepest and best haiku about salamanders that I've ever seen. Well done!

Oh, my little newt
Looking so plump, yet pretty.
Why won't you just lay

Conditions just right.
Male is looking for loving,
Female not so much.

Await my compilation of haikus, Breeding Woes, by jasper408!

I am THAT bored I'm trawling old threads today....but I love these!

Here are my attempts:

Dark axolotl
hides under a shady log
no, you can't see me...

Small axolotl
I wish you would eat more worms
and grow very big

Me too, there's not much call for Haiku where I come from but i'll give it a go :)

Japanese giant,
Much heavier than my dog.
I'll stick to Cynops!

I'm bored at work again.

Axolotls are NOT fish:
Neotenic pet
Swimming - though you are not fish
but salamander

Axie in a tank
Swims right up to the surface
And gulps at the air

Ode to summer:
Sad axolotl
Sulking in the summer heat
Waiting for winter

A haiku about floaty-bum syndrome:
Back end is floating
Obviously not happy
He needs to poop!

And how about a personal ad:
Axolotl girl
Round and filled with many eggs
Seeks male for mating

Not sure if this is right, but here it goes...

Summer too dry
No Amphibians to be found
Where's the rain?

EDIT: Nope, I did it wrong, lets try again.....

Summer is too dry
No Salamanders anywhere
Where is the rain?

That should be right.
