•leaping from tank 5' above tiles 0.0
•breaking arm >_<
•having arm amputated O.O

He/She has grown up to be a very healthy cutie patootie

He looks like a lighter colored wildtype? That's my closest guess. Just gorgeous, though. I love it.

I guess I could kind of see from the black eyes why someone might guess leucistic, but isn't it unusual for them to have that much pigment?

I wouldn't say leucistic at all.
Does he have a kind of shiny ring around his eye? If so, my guess is wild type. If not, I'm guessing a lighter melanoid. Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm still an amateur with axolotl colorations and genetics), but I'm fairly sure melanoids lack the "shiny" iridophores that a wild type axolotl would have.
Either way, he's gorgeous. Let me know if he ever contributes to making babies :P

Edited because I forgot how to spell.

I've never noticed the ring on my little one. Although his colour seems to be getting more purple every day :)

The Cute Axie Pictures Thread #2-imageuploadedbytapatalk1357644734.404604.jpg

I think it's easier to see the ring on my other wild type axie.

The Cute Axie Pictures Thread #2-imageuploadedbytapatalk1357644838.966946.jpg

The little one has changed a lot since I first asked :)

Nikki I would say he's Melanoid, unless the ring isn't showing in the photo

Here are some old photos of my axies...

First one is a photo of Bela (golden) and Pierre (pink)
Pierre was sold to a friend, but Bela is still with me ^^

Second photo is Bela when she was 7 months

Third photo is my wild type female called "Freda" when she was a baby :)
