A quick search turns up nothing relevant.

It may be that Wards doesn't have (or want to deal with) the CITES aspect of Canadian trade.

I live in Nanaimo, BC Canada and I bought my Axie just over a year ago in my local pet store so I'm thinking that someone is handing out wrong info. I know of a few ppl now that have them close to where I live.

Axolotls are, by the ridiculously broad definitions in the British Columbia Wildlife Act, considered wildlife in BC, so they are technically illegal here; however, I doubt they waste their time enforcing it which is probably why you can still buy them all over the place, at least on Vancouver Island.

Axolotls are illegal as wildlife in the following provinces from reading their laws. BC, PEI, NS and NB.

Completely legal in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba (aside from Winnipeg), Ontario, Quebec and NFLD is questionable.

There was just a confiscation in Prince George BC this week so they are going after people.

I breed in Alberta

They are banned here in Virginia unfortunately. Began to wonder why I couldn’t find them anywhere....

    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.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    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
