I've actually done research on this exact thing: conservation aquaculture/captive breeding programs. It's not that simple that you just breed more and release them. The tiger salamanders are declining because of environmental factors, not lack of breeding (but breeding with axolotls isn't helping). So until the problems with their habitat are fixed, releasing captive-bred individuals is just wasting government money.

I have 3 axolotls which I got from a LFS/craigslist. You just have to be lucky in finding them c:

and no permit, its either illegal or legal depending on how the government feels~
so there is still hope? what part of California are you from? Do you happen to know if they are currently illegal?

@Olympia
Yep

But its smart not to go flashing them around since I cant really prove that I got them when they were legal.


@Karebear13
Im in central california and so far as I know, they are illegal right now. Theres a place i know of that has them seasonally, but I dont know when they get them in.

Your best bet would be to call fish and game and ask if they are right now.

And theres hope, I got 2 of mine when they were illegal off craigslist, you just have to keep an eye open.

Got a couple more pictures!! I feed him bloodworms and newt pellets, but was trying some beef heart.... He didnt know what to do wit it. XD The snails ended up eating it over night.




EDIT: Yes there are a lot of pellets... I accidentally dumped too many in. But he didnt eat them all anyway, so i let the snails eat them... ^^; he usually only gets between ten and fifteen pellets at a feeding, and one whole cube of blood worms a day. I am pretty sure this is a good amount, as he eats all of it by night time. But if its too much i need to know. There really isnt anything on feeding amounts, just foods.

Hey do you have pebbles in your tank?

I can't really see the pictures on my phone ^^;

If they are, you should take them out, axolotls have a nasty habit of eating stones then dying from the pebble blocking them up
