How can you tell if it's a copper or a really light wild?

The colour is pretty distinctive, but coppers have red eyes, wilds have black.

I couldnt see red eyes in the pics but it does look like a copper, the marbling on the axolotl also points to copper rather than a light wild.

Thank you both :)
Yeah I'm not sure if his eyes are red or not. One day they'll look like their black, the next they look red, or its my imagination lol. I thought coppers were a bit more pink/very light maroon, with a light body with darker spots.

tend to look like copper lol, the marbling gets more distinct as they mature, the red reflection in the eye is the distinctive characteristic though, ozzy coppers dont have red eyes, they look the same , share the same name but are a different morph.
