Yeah more information is needed. Here are choices:

Plethodon
Ambystomatidae - But the eyes on it throw me of thinking it's one of these.
Aneides

Definitely Ensatina. The head shape and the girth of the tail gives it away. Not sure exactly what species.

I dont know. A friend caught it and gave it to me. He said he found them under some leaves by a stream. I released them the next day after taking some pics. I thought it was an Ensatina. I never knew though. Just wanted to know what opportunity i bypassed.
Thanks for the help!

Definitely an Ensatina. Easily seem from the head and eye shape.
Justin said it all...

It was the tail that I couldn't figure out. But I think I was somewhat close with Plethodon.

Are you keeping it Frogman?

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

  • Albi_the_axolotlt:
    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.
