Axolotl colors

This is a discussion on Axolotl colors within the Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding forums, part of the Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) category; I have a question about axie colors. I have 4 leuistic larvae. Three of them look "normal" with dark eyes ...

Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Default Axolotl colors

I have a question about axie colors. I have 4 leuistic larvae. Three of them look "normal" with dark eyes and the white body.

I have one however, that has a more freckled shiny head and some shine on his torso which the others do not have. Also, instead of just having dark eyes, he seems to have a shiny ring around the dark part. I'm just wondering if this is some sort of normal coloring or something? Or something wrong (I dont' think it is but you never know...)

I love my little Quetzal, though. He's neat looking XD

Out of curiosity, what colors of larvae does everyone else have?

Some pictures of Quetzal...and his tankmates. If anyone can tell me anything about his coloring and eyes (if it's strange or normal) please let me know!

Also, I'd love to see everyone elses axies :)

I think Quetzal is actually a wild type, but I could be wrong :)

Really? That would be cool! I got them from my friend in the science lab, and was told that they should all be leucistic but I don't think they're exactly careful about what colors breed so it's possible.

It's be awesome too because my friend wants this one (she gave him that name) and she likes the wild-types better than the leucistic coloring.
