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.

    Does anyone know if aquacare general tonic is ok for axolotls as a treatment for bacterial or fungal infection?

    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)

    My three inch axolotl was having trouble pooping up to a few days ago. I wasn't feeding her as often because I was scared I would just add to her constipation. I fridged her until she pooped (twice), and then began to feed her around 6 bloodworms every other day. she's been pooping everyday now, but she's at that age where you can see through her stomach and I always see poop ready to come out but has not yet passed. I don't think she's constipated anymore, but I'm not sure and i don't want to over or underfeed her... any advice?

    @Lilith, fridging is not required for fungus treatment. Read my thread on treatment.

    Its probably not pooping because its hardly beign fed, it pooped in the fridge because the lower temp caused it to purge itself. If it stays constipated you can pm me

    Hi guys. Quick question. I have newly morphed eastern newt efts. They lost their gills but they still prefer the water. I have coconut fiber, moss, hidey holes and some food in the temporary habitat for them (waiting for the other newts to morph as well). But they still run back to the water. Is it the wrong substrate? Do they prefer something other than coconut fiber? I've been doing everything else properly (According to my research) but just wondering why they haven't ventured up. Have any ideas?

    My guess is they simply have no reason to leave. Do they still get enough food in the water? Maybe humidity is too low?

    I spray mist the place every day. And I do still feed him. One of them has finally come out. But now I have another problem. They don't look like eastern newts! I am posting pictures on a thread I've started. If you can, take a look for me and see. :)
