Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

Hmm, thought I posted this already. Guess not. Just noticed after looking at a recent photo of my CA tiger, that she's losing her spots. I know their patterns can change through their lifetime, just thought it was curious.

"As of August 2005, the California Tiger Salamander is protected by California law as a threatened species, but populations in Sonoma and Santa Barbara counties are protected as endangered species."

The salamander is, I think, about 7 yrs in captivity. Got it off a friend after he left the state last year. I figure it's better than releasing it into the wild, but who knows. I figure age may be a factor in the spot loss

I have an Eastern tiger that was initially black with yellow spots. Then the spots became olive, now six years later he is almost entirely olive with a few (very few) broken black lines....belly was and still is yellow with grey blotches.
