Sander, Pirate had quite a few offspring with her mutation. Jacob offers that line for sale from time to time.

Hmm, America is about on the other side of the world, I don´t think shipping some to Belgium is an option :tongue:

Hey Jake and all :)

I just read through this post again. Just fascinating. I've been given a chimera last summer. The owner thought she was sick and I was able to tell her otherwise. Then this incredible woman just offered her to me !

I have a brother and a sister of hers (same parents but not same clutch). I will put them together as soon as the littluns are big enough. And then reproduce them, just as Jake did, to see if there is any chimeras coming out of it, again :)

A chimera is an animal with two sets of DNA instead of one. They usually end up exhibiting different markings/colors/etc on the different sides of their body.

Why is this making me want to get an axolotl? I already have two leopard geckos and six Eastern newts. xD

I believe it to be a Chimera, something to due to an embryonic cell division anomaly as I understand -but I am no expert in genetics.

After a week of looking I found these two, I know I have some of younger embryos, but I can't find them right now.

    Help!! My nitrates won’t go up! They are at 0ppm and so is my ammonia and nitrites. Can I put my axolotl in the tank without the nitrates or does the axolotl need them? If not how do I get my nitrates up?

    0ppm nitrates would indicate your tank isn't cycled and therefore it isn't safe to add in the axolotl.

  • madcaplaughs:
    You should be dosing the tank with ammonia to cycle it, which would then be converted into nitrite and then nitrate.

    @axolotl nerd do you know how to treat fungus correctly? You don't wanna wait. No pressure, but my cousin's axolotl had a tiny bit of fungus on the tail and a day later it took over the whole body and it died.

    does any one know where i can find simple cage setup for fire salamanders on here. I know some like to give it a realistic setup but I always believe in simple setup and care in the right as long as animal is happy.
