Question New Ambystoma tigrinum

Hey there, I'm now an owner of an Ambystoma Tigrinum or Tiger Salamander (21cm long).. well, I'm not sure about his type...
Im posting some pics for you to tell me the type and the sex if it is possible

And one more question... it is still not a salamander, will he/she transform even the temperature or everything is OK to stay like this?

Congrats on your new animal.
Even though it´s aquatic it is a salamander. It´s just a salamander in the larval fase.
It will morph, and become a fully terrestrial animal.

It´s not possible to sex it now because it´s still a larva, and it´s sexual organs are not yet developed.

Just in case you haven't read it yet, here is the care sheet for the tiger salamander http://www.caudata.org/cc/species/Am...tigrinum.shtml. Caudata Culture has a bunch of information that will help you to take care of your animal.

It's definitely not an axolotl but the species of tiger is hard to guess. It's rather large for a tiger larva. Where did you get it? The answer to that question will probably let us answer what kind of tiger it is.

I got it from an aquarium here in Mexico City.. They call 'em here "Water Dog" but i thought it was a Tigrinum because the last time my bro bought one and it became one.. But yeah, this one is bigger

Thank you all for your answers

It looks like Ambystoma andersoni to my eyes.

Maybe a picture from the side will help: you might be able to tell if it's mature or not based on the cloaca. Might narrow it down. It doesn't really look like andersoni to me, but I could be wrong.
