The votes are in and have been counted, so without further ado it's time to announce the winners of the 2012 Axolotl Calendar Photo Competition. Thanks very much to everyone who participated, it was no easy task picking the winners from all the great entries. The calendar will be available from the caudata.org store before Christmas so make sure you leave some room in your stocking!

Congratulations to our winners!

Congrats, you guys! It was hard to judge the axolotl calendar, way harder than the all-species calendar. I didn't have the "between these two, this one is rarer so that's the one I'll pick" option!

I had to choose a different image because the one Mark indicated has no room after cropping in order to fit the cover labels without obscuring the axolotl's face too badly.

I'm sure Morrison won't mind as he's still in the Calender. Many thanks to everyone involved in making this possible.


Regards Neil

This was last year's calendar, not this year's. This year's winners will be announced on Monday and the Calendars will be available to buy on Monday too.

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

  • LauraLobster:
    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings
