Rep: Limede has shown reliable knowledge
Default Ambystoma opacum

I've had this little bugger for about 3 months now, and seems to be doing just fine. Eats very well anything I try to feed it with, be it worms (E. foetida), mealworms or isopods.

I don't really have a lot to say about it, just wanted to share some pictures and maybe get confirmation of what sex it might be (I have my own guess, but I think it's better not to bias your opinion on it)

The first two pictures are from when it was still a new comer.

I've only added these leaves today, for anyone who's wondering, these are magnolia tree leaves.

I wanted to take a picture of it without any dirt on, but as soon as I placed it on the water, it zapped right away into the leaves, so I didn't had a chance to take that shot.

I was also wondering if I could get one or two more specimens to this tub (50x35x15cm)
