Default Free WT Axolotls for Pick Up in Philadelphia

Hi All,

Earlier this year I purchased 50 eggs from ohaxies - Golden Albino Axolotl Eggs for Sale. I purchased so many because I knew I had some friends who wanted some, and because I was expecting much less survival based on past experiences with cannibalism. Turns out most of the axolotls have survived and are doing well, probably owing to the free brine shrimp I have access to at work. I've distributed a bunch of them to friends already, but there are only so many people in my graduate program. It's already getting hot here, and I would really prefer to avoid shipping them. Because I trust this community, and because I know how hard it is to drive out places, if anybody is willing to pick the axolotls from Philadelphia, I will give them away for free.

The axolotls are currently between 2 and 4 inches, and growing very quickly. I currently have 25 in my possession, and am planning on keeping 4. A quarter of the clutch turned out to be Leucistic, but most of those are already called for. I believe the axolotls should be heterozygous for both melanoid, and xanthic (albino), and that 2/3rds of phenotypic WTs will be heterozygous for the Leucistic trait. Ideally you can pick up from my apartment or from my place of work, I'm also willing to travel a bit by public transport.

These guys have already taken over my studio apartment and are eating me out of house and home, so please let me know if you are interested! PM me for pick up details.

Ben
