Hi,

A few pics of my Hynobius retardatus larvae... found in the pool of their outdoor enclosure.
It's their first breeding, the most part of the "egg bags" wasn't fertile.

Congrats! Great photos as well. Good luck with the offspring!

Just out of curiosity, how many clutches of eggs did you get? -Seth

Nice! Do you have any photos of the enclosure? What sex ratio do you have?

Thanks !

Here's a pic of the enclosure. It's 150 x 65 cm and 60 cm underground.
The "pool" is very tiny, but it seems it's enough for them...




I put 8 subadults inside in 2012, but in this kind of setup I never see them all in the same time.
So I don't know what is the sex-ratio.
I had two clutches this year, so I've at least two females...

It's around 1,5-2 cm diameter ;
I don't know the length, I didn't unroll the clutch to measure it. But I guess it's at least 20 cm (unrolled).

Last year, for their first breeding, clutches was around 1-1,5 cm diameter and 8-10 cm length.

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.

    We have an axolotl called Jasper who is approx 3 years old. He was being attacked by his companion so we separated them. He has healed his wounds now but has got very thin. his lips have turned black. he was just looking still and dead at times but ears moved so we knew he was still alive. Hold earthworms right in front of him which after some time he will take you think good he is eating but then it pops straight out again. At the moment he is in the fridge. Not sure what else to do if he can't or won't eat !!

    I am new to axolotls myself and one thing I learnt was that earth worms when in distress give off an awful taste - have you tried live river shrimp? Mine really like these and are always happy to 'bite' - I also give them live crickets and pellets which are really pungeant in smell and they always take these - even wait at the glass for them! So sorry to hear he was being attacked by his companion!

  • MelissaKenyon:
    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help with our axy, she absolutely loves her food and we've notice tonight after her worms( that she ate in one mouthful) that she ue was struggling to get up to the top for air. She's never done this before, she usually goes up every 5-10 mins or so. She is 6 months old and seems very healthy. Could it be a problem with our water level or water quality or could she just be to full?
