Default Michigan Axolotl Owners

Just a fellow Michigan Axolotl owner looking for others in the Michigan area to network with. I started a group ( currently a lonely group of one) but didn't know if there were any other groups just for Michigan Axolotl Owners. Nothing against our neighbors in other states.

Except those Ohioans. I have something against them. Ugh.

Just kidding. I've only got a Buckeye problem.

There certainly are a lot of us here. I think we're one of the better represented states on the forum.

Hey Mycenaean I'm right down the road from you. Do you mind if I ask where you got your axolotls? If you got them from The Fish Doctors on Washtenaw, there's a good chance they were ones I bred.

That's because of Michigan's dismal caudate diversity. We have to get our fix by coming on here.

Neotenic Jaymes, Scorpion, Urmat, my partner and I went herping the other day, and found a whopping 2 species of salamanders (redbacks and blue-spotted). When you add in frogs and snakes, we found like 5 species. Wooo! (where's that 'sarcasm' font when you need it?)

I got mine from a science project back in high school. Now I'm going to school at UMich. They will be moved into my summer apartment soon! :)

Is there any way to sell back some of the axolotls to cover my costs? Let me know if you have any tips.

Also another Michigan Axolotl owner here from Grand Rapids. We *very* recently started getting Axis over here from a breeder at blue fish aquarium and VIP pets.

Anyone close to Mt. Pleasant. By close I mean 10-15 minutes. I have only seen one other person on here that was in close proximity to me.

I am from MI too! :) I live in the middle of nowhere (Otisville) but I'm about 20 minutes from Flint, and an hour from Lansing.

Aw Hayden! Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. I defected to North Dakota where I haven't had Internet since April, otherwise I would have organized something!

I know this thread is from a while ago, but if anyone's still looking, I'm in Grand Rapids and looking for a pet axolotl, any idea where to find one? (Stores, people selling them) I do have a VI Pets by my house, should I check it out?
