Cool Discovery

Hi everyone

I think i have made a discovery, Heres the full story.

I was measuring my axolotl to ***** his condition and how he is getting on (he is going great) and i had a bit of a brainstorm and if you love reptiles as much as amphibians the you may have heard that a crocodiles length can be reliably measured by only measuring the head and multiplying the number by a number that has slipped my mind (gee when you need the info you get a mind blank) anyway I though what if this could be applied to axolotls. So I measured My axolotls head and it was 2 cm long and then I measured the axolotls full length which was 14, so if you times 2 by 7 the result is 14. Now i need to confirm this by getting the measurements of other axolotls, that is where i need your help i only have one axolotl but if you guys could tell me how long you axolotls head and all of its body to give me something to work with.

thanks brad

Hi Brad!

Well I tried too, but I couldnt, so I made a comparative from pictures and it is not an exact proportion in all the pictures because of the angle and water depth, but it is very close!! Ill try to measure them, I hope I do it right and get you a "live" answer!! very interesting though!

well I'm not really willing to take mine out ant measure him, but I have dome some rough measurements through the glass. mine is about 5.5" long, and .75" wide at the head. I'd say that's pretty consistent with your hypothosis.
