Are you shure? So, maybe it has developed later? Is it possible? 🤔

Thank for your reply ��
I think she/he has about one year, she/he had no cloaca bump in march, but had the black fingertips, now in May (after two months) she/he has developed the bump I’m a little bit confused, how this is possible?

Woah that’s incredibile
So aven if an Axolotl has changed his fingertips before the year, that no means he have shoed his goods right? What a discover!

So we have a beautiful leucistic little boy at home ! And he is fine 😄😁

The finger tips changing has nothing to do with maturity.

She yep, that's a male 🙂
