Well, this will be my first post of a recent photo in the axolotl section. I would normally put this in the Photo Gallery topic but since the axolotl section is taking over, I thought I would post it here.

Melanoid and melanoid albino (melanoid is a black animal, melanoid albino a white animal), a few days off hatching. Photo taken on Tuesday 23rd November:

And here two quick snaps of mother and father. Mother is a melanoid albino and father is a melanoid (but he's heterozygous for albinism). Mother's about 25 cm long (10 inches) - still growing. Father is about 28 cm (11 inches), still growing steadily and heading for 30 cm.

That's one of those worms that people keep telling me axolotls don't eat. Someone hasn't told my axolotls that.

The golden axolotl is the "runt" of my axolotls - she was badly attacked when younger, and she has really only finished regenerating her front left leg and her tail, and now she's coming on nicely.

All of these axolotls were born in August 2003 I believe (thanks Claire!).

John, I couldnt tell you if my axies eat them or not. I put them in and they instantly disappear... Unless they spontaneously combust without a trace... lol

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
