Check in the "for sale" section of this forum. Axolotls are usually available there.

Contact your local pet shops, they usually have them and this way you can compare prices. If not they may even be able to order them in for you. You can look in the for sale section of this forum as eggs can quite easily be posted in the mail. I was personally lucky enough to get my eggs for free from my school as their axolotls had babies.

In the US, you almost always have to get them shipped from a private breeder. I think Niles Biological has them sometimes. You can try posting a 'wanted' ad on this forum, in the appropriate section. However, this is the "wrong" time of year for them; they usually breed in winter and spring.

Default good idea

I agree with Jacob look into the for sale forum . I actually got 6 real healthy axolotl babies from him about 2 - 3 weeks ago and they were more then I was hoping for . He also gave me a lot of help getting ready for them .

not sure if it helps, but i got mine from Ward's Science.

They were about 35.00 USD a piece with shipping, (albinos), and I got them next day shipped with cold packs. They didn't seem fazed by the trip.

(I might add it seems that ordering from a breeder here would be more beneficial, as their advice, etc. could be priceless!)

Good luck!

You could go to PetCo, but I doubt it. If you read this thread, it suggests a couple places to buy them.

If you look for reptile expo's in your area I bet you will find them. They usually have a nice selection of amphibians at the shows I have been too.

This really isn't the season for them. If you wait a couple more weeks, the 'for sale' section will be flooded with eggs.
