Some frog species actually have some regeneration capacity, although dependent on age of the frog. Humans also have regeneration capacity, for example healing of wounds. I know sharks do have a remarkable trait when it comes to regeneration. They can grow tooth their complete lifespan. Some scientists suggested to implement this mechanism in people without teeth so they can grow back their own teeth. Very cool idea I think.

Day 84 (week 12) post amputation:

This week his toes grew a bit longer and his paw is getting a bit more plump, also his knee is more visible now. Unfortunately from now on I can't make more photo's every week because of a change in my living situation. However I think the most impressive part of the regeneration process is well documented now. I will continue posting photos but not every week.

I am sorry to hear that, although I hope it was a positive change in living situation. This has been an awe-inspiring process to watch unfold, and I'm glad your salamander has (quite literally) made it back on its feet.

Update:

The little newt is happy to have his paw back, and its still growing! His knee joint is now very well developed. Only his toe structures needs to develop completely (and ofcourse his yellow spots!).









off note: I am wondering if everybody can still see my photos in this thread, because i can not. Probably due to the broker server recently

I also can't open the images, and when I open them in a new tab I get a 404 error. Perhaps upload them to an alternative image host and then post links?

Too bad the photos dont work anymore. I host them from photobucket, and i still can access my account there. The pics are not gone (still have everything saved on my pc though).

Is it possible to edit older posts? if not then i should make another thread.

Hi everybody,

The newt is still going really well, his paw is fully functional just as it was before. His injury happened at 10 november 2017, so that is almost 5 months ago. At this moment even his yellow spots are returning! The toes need to grow a bit longer to resemble his other 3 paws. This stage of development is quite slow, but that is normal. The regeneration process can be compared with the early development of newts. There, it also took about half a year to develop an adult leg.

I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    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!

    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?
