Default Frustrated Axos

I Have heard before that and axolotls gills tell alot about its emotion. I have heard confusing facts on this subject though such as if their gills are flared out and spread apart they are frustrated. However I have heard the opposite that when their gills are spread out they are happy. Please clear this up for me!!!!!!!

Axolotls don't experience emotion like humans do. The gills are a good indicator of how an axolotl is doing physically (stressed, ill, etc.), but they don't have emotions like happiness or anger.
