    Zhilin: They're not expensive at all. On the caudata forum members are constantly giving away the babies and eggs of their axolotls. Shipping is expensive, but the axolotls themselves are often free. Based on the number of offspring up for adoption, I'd guess that they're pretty easy to breed.

    Here are a few more pics. These are the only other pictures I've got right now, but I'll start a thread in the future with more current pictures.




    i<3carnivores: Awww! Sheba is a cutie
    And of course this won't be the last you'll see of all my jungle critters! More pics to come

    dionae: Yeah, I've got a leopard gecko too, and I've seen what some of their regenerated tails look like (luckily, mine still has his original). From what I've read, it's not in the same league at all with what axolotls can do. Apparently, axolotls are so good at regenerating without any lasting deformities that scientists are currently studying them to see if they can't apply their abilities to human medicine. I love spreading cool axolotl facts

    Mass: Thank you!

    nightsky: Thanks! I got lucky when I bought that spec x tal as a noob last year. I had no idea it would end up so beautiful.

    Thez and Jim: Thank you!

    Dboeren: That would be a super awesome combo. Although, despite the legs, axolotls can't actually go up on land. Even then, the juxtaposition of two of the coolest organisms in the world would be great.

    Why does that sound so familiar?

    hahaha nice one Dionea!

    OMG that axolotl is a monster. I love them so much. It makes me want to get one. But I could probably settle for a tiger salamander or something I can grow carnivores with.

    Cassandra,
    Wow! Great collection of healthy plants & critters. I am especially am impressed by your maxima - beautiful plant with a very cool structure.

    Very healthy & cool axolotl. Any idea of their life span?
    All the best,

    Ron: Thanks!
    The average lifespan is around 20 years I think.
