Rep: le frog is an unknown quantity at this point
Exclamation Little axolotl is extremely underweight and not eating

A few months ago i purchased a small axolotl from Queensland whilst on holiday, but during this school term holiday (about 2 weeks) i wasnt at home and had asked my stepfather to feed him.

When i return the smaller axolotl has lost what looks like half his body weight, which was fairly thin to begin with and simply wont eat anything i offer him, be it earthworms, bloodworms or small pieces of diced kidney (both of my axies usually love this as a treat)

his so thin i can see the individual bones in his arms and legs, his hips, shoulders and the corners of his jaw all stick out against his skin.

Im very worried im going to lose him, and im trying anything i possibly can.
