Strange dark freckles

This is a discussion on Strange dark freckles within the Sick Axolotl? forums, part of the Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) category; I noticed today that my axolotl, Yoshi, has dark flecks on her body and face. She's almost 5 now, and ...

Sick Axolotl? Axolotl looking down in the gills? The doctors are in.

Default Strange dark freckles

I noticed today that my axolotl, Yoshi, has dark flecks on her body and face. She's almost 5 now, and I never noticed these before. I thought they were dirt, but when I lightly tried to wipe them off, they wouldn't budge. Are these something to be concerned about? I am behind on cleaning her tank (was planning on doing it tonight) so could that have something to do with it? She's eating fine and acting normal. Any advice?

She is fine. My Lucy developed freckles too. It is a common thing and completely harmless. It is a sign of beauty in some countries . At least that's what my dad always said about mine. I like them a lot more on my axolotl than myself.

Thank you! That makes me feel much better :). It just seemed so sudden that they showed up; guess I need to pay more attention to details XD

As far as I can tell, this is completely normal. A lot of axies develop freckles like that. You have no reason to worry :)
