This is Axel She is a wild type. Has anyone else ever seen one like her? I have looked and she seems quite unusual.

Are those lighter specks on her back and head iridophores? She's a gorgeous wild.

OK I'm not that familiar with axeis but that kinda looks like a tiger salamander neotone, but I'm not sure. Just a thought. -Seth

Here's a picture of a typical tiger larva: http://www.caudata.org/forum/attachm...l_dsc_1133.jpg

As you can see, their toes tend to be more rounded than an axolotl's. Their markings also tend to be less "extravagant" than an axolotl's, and axolotls don't develop stripes on their tails like tiger larvae do. Just a few differences to look for.

That is what we are calling speckled wild type gfp. Where did you get it? It looks like one of mine.

The green eyes are a dead give away that it is a gfp. In the wild types the fluorescence is masked by the dark color. Sometimes you can fluorescence in the belly of wild types.
