Rep: joshwert is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Axolotl gender

I have a melanoid axolotl that's about 10-12 months old. I got this one with a batch of 4 others while they were all juveniles and about 2 inches long. It seems that most of them have grown to sexual maturity so I can identify their gender, but I'm not sure if my melanoid, Leal, is mature enough to sex or not. It looks like it may be a boy because it's cloaca looks slightly swollen, but it has a kinda divet at its base, so I'm not too sure.

Hi there and welcome to the forum.

The cloaca on your melenoid doesn't look as swollen as on my matures males, but then I'm not very good at sexing axolotls and had to post pictures of all of mine to this forum to get them sexed.

I would say this is a male from looking at the cloaca and the body shape.
