Rep: SwampGoth is an unknown quantity at this point
Question Gender and age ?

Hello!

I wanted to know if anyone can help me determine the sex of my new Axolotl, Chubbles. I have unloaded pictures. Also will anyone know an approximate age Chubbles might be? Chubbles measures at about 7 and a half inches.
Thank you for any help you can give.

IMPORTANT NOTE Chubbles is in a VERY TEMPORARY container in these pictures. The cycle for the tank is done but I am paranoid and wanted to wait one extra day to be sure everything is safe for my Chubbles.

Have a wonderful day!
Swamp Goth

Male Axolotls will be slimmer than female Axolotls. Their cloacal will be much larger than those of a female. so i will suggest that this one is female

Yes looks like a female! Age is harder to place, but I see her finger tips are lighter which can be an arbitrary way of telling that they are sexually mature, and being 7.5 inches long she is likely a teen. I'd place her between 7-9 months or so?
