View Description
Welcome to Axolotland, a new mountainside village aquarium and habitat for two aquadragons, i.e. axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum). These very unique and cute amphibians, which are closely related to tiger salamanders are pretty interesting creatures. In this video, we watch these two axolotls evolve from strangers to best friends. We also watch how they hunt, forage, relax, and feed. You'll be surprised how intelligent and endearing they are.

The name "Ambystoma" means cup-mouth, and axolotls do have large, wide mouths. When an axolotl wants to eat something, it opens its mouth suddenly and water rushes in, along with the food or anything else around (such as parts of other axolotls, or pieces of gravel).

Those axolotls looking for the pellets remind me of me looking for my keys when I drop them in my car

Wait ok so we have the Antiverse and now we have the Axolotlverse? I think somebody needs to write a guide to the lore of antscanada

Your kindness is unmatched. Because of you, people are starting to value the importance of life whether it is Small or Big. You taking care of the Axolotls is enough contribution to save a little bit of it's diminishing population. Not only that, the way you've nursed your Ants, Spiders, and other exotic and non-exotic pets showed us that Nature is a wonderful and interesting place even if it's both Dangerous and Beneficial to us. We lived in this world only to survive, and not enjoy life in it's fullest. We've been scared of exploring the mysteries of Nature to the point we only valued our own lives. It is our human nature. But, it doesnt mean we cant do both at the same time. We can Survive and Enjoy life at as we explore the mysteries of it and events we haven't been apart of. You are one of the models that today's generation must look upto. You placed a mark in this world... And in that mark you've placed, this is what it is stated: "Life, no matter how small or big, is still valuable in this world despite all reasons. We humans are important, as even if some of us destroy it, there are also humans that recreates and values it. So, value life, and never be those people who contradicts this purpose."

I'm glad you work so hard to make great habitats for the creatures in your care and make sure they aren't stressed. I don't have the energy or time to care for something as delicate as an axolotl (or most aquatic creatures) so seeing your videos is great!

I gotta say, that tank is way too deep for them. You don't really want it to be deeper than 2 times their length, and ideally it should be 1.5 times their length. Also it's a little crowded! Axolotls like to pinball, bouncing at high speeds off the things in their enclosures, and having huge amounts of clutter in the way will just upset them. Also, brave move keeping a male and female in the same enclosure :P Good luck come mating time, they lay over 1,000 eggs each! Oh and make sure to do a 20% water change every 2 weeks. They make a LOT of nitrogen. A *LOT* of nitrogen.

I would have thought you were better than throwing shade at people for holding you to high care standards. You act like it was unreasonable that people were frustrated at you for putting an animal that needs cold water and get's a foot long in a minuscule amount of water that you can't cool in any way. I'm glad you realised the mistake and fixed it, but you need to put more thought into your aquatic animals care so you stop making stupid mistakes like that in the first place. Not to mention the fiasco with the crayfish.

Do you ever quarantine any of your aquatic animals before putting them in? Like it just seems you go out and buy them from some sketchy place and dumb em in their new tank? A full quarantine would definitely get rid of whatever injuries from the pet shop that female would have...

Ahmaigosh They are so cute <3 You made a good choice going for a second that very much needed a good home. My hamster benny was horribly injured by other hamsters in his cage, having several bald spots where they tore out his fur, ugly scratches, and a swollen eye. The lady at the pet store did what she could to keep him alive but without a good home, he stood no chance. So I bought him and brought him home. He lived 3 years. His eye never fully recovered though and he had serious balance problems (he was always falling off stuff) but he had a big cage to play in, he got held all the time, he got tasty food and clean water, and his nest was warm. He was a good hamster. He never bit and he only escaped once when he was young (he humorously got himself trapped in another cage near my bed. I have no idea how that happened but it was funny). I miss him.

Axolotls hunt their food using scent, as well as by tracking movements in the water, in which it gets picked up by lateral organs at the sides of their heads and trunk.
