I posted a while ago wondering the genders of my axolotl's, im still unsure however i have taken a much clearer picture of my albino (Nando) who seems much more prominent be him/her a she or he.

I also have a new axolotl (Dark blacky brown wildtype) living with my other 2:happy:

My question is the gender, but also just posting pictures of my axolotls too.. :)
And any gender behavioural differences, my wildtype (paler of the two has a very large head)

Thankyou

How old are they?? They look too young to sex yet :(. It is really hard to tell sex until they are about 12 - 18 months old.
I had a what I thought was a lovely little girl Abby and um well he had to live with a girlie name.

The lighter wild looks female to me, the darker wild also female (but due to her size I would not guarantee this) as for the albino you ideally need a side view rather than underneath, your axie does appear to have a bulge but also its cloaca looks a bit open so its hard to say either way on that one!!

Females are also more rounded when you look directly down on them!

What sizes are they in inches??

The dark wildtype is about 4-5 inches ( looks the same as my older wildtype so far..)
the larger wildtype 6-7 inches (thought to be female - has an extremely large head in comparison to my other 2)
albino is about 5-6 inches (this one is the oldest, the wildtype was originally a bit smaller but has outgrown the albino quickly, not sure why)
