Hybrid Ambystoma mexicanum x Ambystoma andersoni

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).

thank u all for this topic!!
there are some details about hybrids
in mamals,the males are less fertile for about 5 generations
but,with birds reptiles etc,its the females that have fertilityproblems
it also looks like Ambystoma`s in nature,when there is lack of a partner,they use a subspecies,only a small percentage of the foreign gene will be in the ofspring
our evolution mostly comes from hybridasions!!call it the `new wilderness``
there are excampels of the craziest intercontinental mixes!!
lama X camel,ligers etc
and as long we dont introduce these to the wild,we can make our fancy petanimals more diverse

A andersoni is sensitive,it will morphe when fed worms,also when waterconditions are bad!!
this year i was very lucky,bred many tigerlike ambystoma`s,not sure about there parents
could be tigers,also could be andersoni,or copper axo??strangest thing is,also golden offspring??

They are doing very little.
I keep two outdoors in a large tub, they have stopped eating now and I occasionally see them near the surface resting. There are three in my unheated shed that have now only just stopped eating, these are a little more active. Despite there being at least one male, there has been no sign of eggs.
I'll try and take some photo's of them when it gets a little warmer

I lost them all during this years big rain storm I hadn't thought to check them as they where reasonably sheltered. I think they swam out when the water overflowed, despite having over flow holes around the edge a few inches down. I found a couple the next evening dried out half way down the garden maybe 24 hours later. Oddly enough, despite having a lot of cats that make use of my garden, none had been touched.
I fished out a few of their larvae from their tub and will try and take some pics soon.

I myself toyed with the idea of breeding ambystoma tigrinum with mexicanum, but was promptly corrected by fellow caudata members. Their points are valid.

Not to mention, I myself am not to impressed with the color pattern of these particular hybrids... much prettier as pure andersoni.

Default Re: Hybrid Ambystoma mexicanum x Ambystoma andersoni

Hello,

I'm doing an assignment for University and my focus is on axolotl x Anderson's salamander hybrid husbandry and ontogenics. Would anybody please be able to give me some information or a citation to read?

Thank you!

Robyn
