      One of the oddities about Axolotls is their ability to regrow severed body parts and organs. Most of the time the part regrows almost perfectly, but sometimes he grows a limb or foot back wrongly. Here is a Golden albino that I acquired that has an “extra” hand growing out of its front right elbow, so it has 5 hands or feet.

      These little cuties are a month old and a little over an inch long. These are melanoid axanthic coppers, MAC for short.

      MY SIL breeds them also. My DD decided to keep one as a pet for a few months to see what is involved so she can be more informative to her DH's customers. The one she picked out is the Wild GFP and it has green eyes and is the kind that will glow green under a blue light. GFP stands for Green Fluorescent Protein which is a special protein that pops out in the genome structure of some axolotls. She wants to gain firsthand experience with the cooling fans so she will know best what to recommend! The house is 71.8 degrees and the fans have cooled the water to 64 degrees.

      Meet Emerald "because of her green eyes" aka Emmy!

      I am starting these little guys on pieces of European earthworms. I cut the worms into about quarter inch pieces but then realized they were way too big, so I cut them in half. Still big but if they can fit them in their mouth they will eat them! will try to cut the pieces even smaller tomorrow!

      These have a kind of prehistoric look to them. I can see how they would grow on you.

      The little guys shown on post 145 are now big enough to sell, and they are looking fantastic! These are the gfp MACs! They will glow neon green under a blue or black light, and look greenish yellow under normal light.

      Here are some pics of some of their siblings that did not inherit the gfp gene so they do not glow under the blue of black light.
