Default Is my axolotl Mosaic? Harlequin? What do you think?

Here are some photographs of my axolotl named "Puzzle", she came from a group of eggs that i bred last year between my male golden albino and my female leucistic. As i have mentioned in a previous post, i have plans to breed her back to her dad next month. Anyway, here are some photos of her as a tiny baby, all the way up till current day.

What a lovely set of photo's, thank you for showing us. I suspect that she is a mosaic.

Thank you! She also has the most funny personality, she really loves her treat time. hehee. I also have a feeling that she still has more growing to do. When she hatched she was about 3 times bigger then any of the other babies.

Thanks very much for the opinion! I think she is Mosaic too, but i am looking for lots of second opinions. I don't have any babies currently for sale, but in have just started this years breeding season. Several different adults have been paired up, and i have plans to breed Puzzle as well to see if she is fertile. I will be posting about the results of her breeding for sure : }

That is one of the most beautiful axolotls I've ever seen. If you ever breed any that look like this id love to buy some. Thanks for sharing! And it looks mosaic to me but those marking do dominate one side. REALLY COOL!!!

Hey there, thanks for the comment. I am very particular about my breeding programs, and this beautiful lady is one of the results. I have a batch of eggs about to hatch that are from her father that look to possibly hold a few interesting wigglers. And i will surely share the results here in a week or so when everyone is established and we can see some color patterns a little better : ) We shall see what happens!

Hi there

Is this Rose City Axolotls? I think I recognize this axie from FB pictures. Very pretty. I have a similar question about mine. When I bought them I was told they were golden albino leucistic crosses.There definitely seems to be more going on than just golden. What do you call this phenotype?

How old was Puzzle when you noticed her changing into a mosaic pattern wise??I'd hate to cull or sell a baby and then realise it was a mosaic!lol
