Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

I will be keeping my small tiger group outdoors, hopefully spring time onwards. They are currently in an unheated shed while I finish their future home. I am going to use a large cold frame and at present I am digging out the soil for their hibernacula and water area.
