Exclamation (TIME SENSITIVE) How to pick a healthy axolotl?

I'm going to an expo on Sunday and I want to pick a healthy axolotl. I went to a local aquarium store and I could see the axolotls there had damaged gills and feet (because they were all kept in one cramped tank). But are there smaller things to look for? Any odd coloration or small deformities?

Hi there!
I would look for an axolotl that has full, fluffy gills and preferably one that has intact limbs. Also look for a healthy weight (body width roughly the size of its head). A healthy axolotl should have the aforementioned traits and be alert/seem interested when you approach it.
