I named my black one Grimace because he's sort of purple, yet burgandy, and grey and has a face that looks like Grimace, that big purple thing from Mcdonalds Click the image to open in full size. but if it turns out he is a she, I am changing her name to Hush puppy. How about the black Axolotl Cumberbund? Or Barly or Bender? Those are cute names Click the image to open in full size.My black one has big eyes like Doodad! They'er adorable Cynthia! Ok, Its offical, Axolotls Know they're cute, and they just want to show it off! I love it!Click the image to open in full size.

The melanistic ones don't have eyes that are any bigger than the others, but their irises lack any iridescence, so they appear to be all pupil. I think they're awesome. Everyone should have a melanistic. They look almost velvety.

You should name it Snot. Once we were tearing apart the old house, and I had inhaled so much 1870's dust that I had black snot. Lol. Okay, that was gross, but that's the story behind Snot.

Thanks all for the nice comments and name suggestions. I still haven't picked out a name. It might have to wait until I know if it is male or female. Please feel free to keep suggesting names I am terrible at nameing axolotls.

I too have experienced the black nasal discharge.. ewww.

Grant - The female in my profile picture is Blingbling. I have a dark wild type female named Echo, a lighter wild type female named Jude, and of course Pea and Doodad pictured above.

I never named the axolotls I have kept in the past, I just referred to them by what they were. i.e. "old golden female", "golden male with 5 legs", "little white male". Not real creative.

Lol don't worry Cynthia I do the same thing with some of my other animals. I raise duroc swine and I just name them what ever number in in their ear lol. Then again they are raised to die...lol. But I would just name it something that has something that is another one of your interests like music, hobbies, or like Heather actors.
