Okay, so I've been PINING over getting an Axolotl for over a year now ever since falling in love with them at my local aquarium. However, I can't find any local, and shipping is simply much too expensive, and it's quite hot here in Texas. SO, my dad was like; "I'll just take you to the bait shop and get you a tiger salamander." Upon looking them up, Tiger Salamander larvae are used as big bait, and look just like Axies. Are they the same thing? If not, how are Axolotls different?
