Title says it all really! Is the Axolotl pictured a boy or a girl. As a side note, this bump on my other axolotl's lip has appeared. It's not getting any bigger so I'm just waiting for it to go away, thinking it's probbaly just from where he's bumped into an ornament. But should I be worried/doing anything else?

Im not terribly experienced but based on what Ive learned from the web I believe thats a male. As for the lip Im sure he will be okay.

I would have thought that was a girl to be honest. Males have a very defined cloaca and that seems kind of small. Could you post a pic of the whole axii? Things like the length of the tail and shape of the head can help with telling if it's a boy or girl. Also how old is s/he?

Thank you for the replies! Here is a better photo of her (or maybe him lol?). As for age, I honestly have no idea, I bought him/her from a pet shop and they didn't have a clue about the age. All I'd say is definitely fully grown (which obviously doesnt give a maximum age, but does give a minimum).

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
