Here's a shot of a CB longtoed from 2003. Ready for reproduction in the coming year or maybe the year there after...

No Russ, they are nominate subspecies, originating from Eugene , Oregon.
Have tried to get others , but so far without much luck...

Don't have any scientific explanation at had but I think it is easier telling that they are Ambystoma macrodactylum macrodactylum and not another subspecies.

I had some from near Eugene a few years ago, but they were much more green (forest green). Odd thing I noticed was the small size they retained as adults compared to specimens I had maintained from CA, ID and MT. As a matter of fact, they only reached a total of about 4 inches compared to 7 or 8 from other locales.

Hai Russ, now you surprise me ... 7 to 8 inch for longtoeds ?? Mine are indeed in the range of 4 to 4,5 inch and that's alos the size I found them in when visitng the area. An no, I didn't bring them home from that trip.. I had the animals prior to the trip... in fact I did part of the trip to see thair habitat so that could adjust my tanks accordingly, which owrked out well.
In 2004 I again bred them, which was the 7th time on a row and I hope to continue doing so.
I ever somebody would find eggs of the other longtoeds I would be interested in trying to rear them up here. I'm not interested in getting wildcaught animals, but some eggsclumps on some waterweeds might just work well.

No bull. The biggest I've seen was from just outside the front gate to Lassen NP in northern CA, a full 8 inches (pictured). But over 6 seems to be not uncommon in the Rockies.

Well the colors on this species certainly seems to be quite different from the ones I have ...

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
