Hi Folks,

I am new to this forum and this is actually my first post. My 14 year old son has an albino female and wild male. They are a year old, and as of three weeks ago, we now have about 150 axolotls that have all just grown front legs. My son is wanting to raise and sell them .... does anyone have experience or advice? I'm trying to help in any way that I can -- will petshops buy axolotl's from individuals? Does anyone know of good sources to sell them? We are in Asheville, NC ... thanks for any advice!

I have sold amounts to local pet shops, but only once. I sold them 25 for $8 each, came back the next day and they were $49.99. Outrageous. My best luck has been selling them in the for sale section of the forum, they go quick and (usually) on this forum you know they're going to an educated and nurturing home rather than being neglected with ignorance. Shipping them individually is a hassle but it's worth it. You can also try kingsnake classifieds and faunaclassifieds. Good luck!

Thanks, Austin, I really appreciate your comment. My son and his friend are REALLY into their axolotls, which is great to see with young teenagers. Thanks again.

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
