Default Any thoughts on this coloring?

I have bred quite a few axies, and this one seems a bit different in his/her coloring. Any thoughts?

It looks like a wild type to me. Time will tell. Many times some of the juveniles look different than others and they wind up looking alike as adults. Everybody gets excited about a weird looking axolotl. I've raised up some blotchy looking melanoids that turned out looking like normal melanoids as adults.

Their has been a lot of threads/posts about different coloured Axies. Albino and leucistic are colour mutantions that have been developed into a gene trait over time in captive specimens so maybe another colour is being created

I have 2 wild type juvies and they look exactly like that one. No difference, just normal.
