Red face Lighter Wildtype Colour Change!

Hi there,

I just thought I'd share pics of my Wildtype, who has decided in his old age to change his colour! This started about a year ago ...

He is completely healthy, eats plenty of worms and he still chases the female Leucistic every now and again .. the usual happy axolotl life

This is him about 2 years ago

This is him now

He still has his markings, they are just really light. He also has a brown outline around his tail. Photo's don't do him justice!

Thanks for the comments, sorry it's been a while since I last logged on.

Unfortunately this li'l guy passed away last Christmas and I don't have any other pictures showing his colour change.

He looked very light like a Leucistic but with his wildtype markings
