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).

Default Shedding time!

Salaman spend most of her time above ground so I thought it was odd that she dug down! Later I realized that it was because she was shedding! She then proceeded to eat the shed skin, which at first I thought was dirt. She actually dug a window which I thought was cool, to be able to see into her den.

Aww she is adorable! I love the little window she made! That's so interesting, I didn't realize that tiger salamanders shed!

Yep! At least I think they do? Toothless shed when he was underwater, but I haven’t seen him really shed on land. It’s also possible that Salaman was just eating dirt
