Rep: LittleLotti is an unknown quantity at this point
Question What do you do with your deceased axolotls???

So first off let me say my axolotls are all in good health. ^.^ But my oldest girl (white Albino) who i bought as a larvea is now 10 years old!!

So it just occured to me I have no idea what to do with her once she passes away. (Hopefully not for another 5 years or so!!) What do you do with your axolotls once they pass away??

I don't have axies but I have a backyard where I bury everything. Cats, ferrets, snakes, salamanders, newts. All end up in the Fairy Garden.

Freeze the body first to ensure any pathogens are killed, then you can bury it. Many people have a special place for pet burials, or use a plant pot and plant a memorial plant.

Thumbs up Re: What do you do with your deceased axolotls???

Thank you both for your replies, we move house a lot for my husband's work so I love the idea of putting her in a plant pot so she can stay with us 😍
