Hi, my Axolotl Ludo looks like his tail is damaged? I got him November of last year and he’s about 8 months old.

It kindof looks like he just wedged it somewhere and got it stuck and that’s how he probably injured. My axolotl had a random injury on his tail and he was just fine. It should heal fine, and I wouldn’t worry about too much! Ludo is such a cute name!

I’d keep an eye on it ofc just to make sure it doesn’t seem to get worse or anything

Some of the baby axolotls I work with at school have had tails that look like that so it’s nothing to really worry about.

Thank you so much! That’s what I assumed but I just wanted to be sure :)
I named him after the monster is the 1986 labyrinth movie!

Awww! I like it. Mine are named Mudkip and Kirby. His tank setup looks really really nice! Do you have a whole picture of it?
