He is an axolotl! :D!

Yes i got the name from HTTYD. X3

You should all get one, they are like water puppies, and so cute!

They ship well in warm weather, just like fish, but if you can find someone local, it will be heaps cheaper!! Lol

Thank you all so much for the comments. X3

Do they live together? How many could you put in a tank? And how big are they? Do they go high in the tank? Or do they just walk around on the bottom, I see they have tadpole-like tails .

He's a cutie. I've always found them so fascinating! Did he really regrow his leg? How did he loose it?

Toothless swims around sometimes, but mostly he sort of scoots and bounces along the bottom.
They can live together when they are full grown, but until they are about six inches long they are cannibalistic, and should be housed alone.
Most only get around 8 inches long, and most places say you can house two in about 10-15 gallons, so i could put four or five in my tank easily. lol!
Toothless is about 6 inches, give or take, i need to do a proper measurement on him actually. XD

Yep! They can regrow any limb. I am pretty sure that he had his leg bitten off by another axolotl in the tank at the lfs, they are cannibalistic until they reach six inches.

I wouldnt. They are a look and dont touch pet, but they are really fun to hand feed. I hand feed Toothless all the time, and he actually comes to my hand now. :)

Just a warning, they do like live food, and they are fairly expensive... Toothless is the cheapest one i have found locally at $30, and he was only three inches long then. Adults are usually $40-$50, easy, and that is for the wild type (like mine) color morphs are always more expensive than that... Baby leusistic axies at the same store i got him at are $50. So shop around, and find babies that have been housed alone, because if they grow up in groups, they tend to stay cannibalistic their whole lives and can never be housed with another axolotl.
