Imy axolotl climbed into this piece of decor and I can’t tell if he’s stuck or not. I tried to move it around to see if he’d come out but I think I just scared him instead. Do you think this hole is big enough for him to exit? He’s around 6 in! His tail was hanging out from the bottom hole but now he’s all tucked inside somehow. Should I be worried?

hi! how long has he been stuck? has he freed himself yet? i would highly recommend calling a veterinarian, as manually removing the animal from the object could prove to be harmful

He actually came out on his own overnight! I put a piece of food right at the top of the hole and I guess he smelled it and came out. Thank you!

thank goodness! i was quite worried for this one and even asked a few friends of mine if they had any ideas on what could be done to free him. glad to see he made it out!

    you got a cooler :D Thats so cool! i normally chill their water down if it gets too warm with clean dechlorinated water when they were in their bigger tanks. i'll need to get one that can work with two tanks at some point. or find them for cheap and get two quiet ones. since im in an apartment.
