      Is this the green-eyed flying purple people eater or just a lovable smiling axolotl? She's a little over a year old and about 9 inches long.

      I got batch of eggs a couple of weeks ago from breeder, and the first two to hatch hatched today. Others should hatch over the next two or three days but it could be as much as a week. They start off this small when they hatch, but in three months they should be 2.5 to 3.5 inches long! For comparison, I put the end of a pencil next to the first hatchling, and the end of a turkey baster.

      The babies that I posted at the start of this thread (post #1) were three months old on the 11th of this month. They were a couple of weeks old in the pictures as contrasted to the newly hatched ones (post #24) in the previous post. Here are some pics of a couple of the babies (in post #1) at 3 months old. Cute, aren't they? For their full look the picture of two side by side are also shown.

      Not quite 3 weeks old, the new babes are growing well. The leucistic babies look like they are bug-eyed, but the albino babes look like they are blind. Because of the eyes, the leucistic babies (lucies) seem to have a defined head. but the albino babies show an almost "invisible head. Look carefully. Can you tell which one is the albino in the picture?

      The juveniles are showing off today, after having lunch and a water change. If you look on the web, many posts make it look really hard to keep these guys, but it is not. Regular feedings, fairly , cool temps, and weekly water changes are the main things to deal with. Love the smiles! Interested? Contact me.

      Yes, I do breed them. They are usually sold and shipped when they are from 3” to 6” inches long. I have some ready to sell now. They are axolotls, a salamander that never grows up. They are amphibians but they stay in water their entire lives, unlike other salamanders, They grow to 12-13 inches long and are mature at around 9-12 months but occasionally they are older than that. They are used a lot in research because of their regenerative properties. They can lose body parts and they will regrow them. They are carnivores, and as pets are generally fed earth worms, black worms, or pellets. They lay eggs, which when hatched the babies are like tadpoles with no legs, and the front legs grow first and then the back legs grow. Unlike frogs, the axolotl keeps its tail, as do other salamanders.

      Here is a pc of my new leucistic gfp axolotl. She is about 6 inches long and about 6 months old. A smiling cutie! I think I will name her Glowbug.

      Another journey begins. These eggs were laid on Jan. 5th. They are beginning to "bean," which means that the baby axolotl is beginning to take shape from the round shape it started with. Those white, bean shaped things are the babies in the eggs. The eggs are enclosed in a round gelatin like ball where the baby develops until hatching in a few weeks. The eggs are similar to frog eggs. It is interesting to watch because you can actually watch the baby develop inside the egg.
