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?

Axolotl stay in larval form their whole lives (unless subjected to horrific water conditions- in which case they can morph to move to cleaner waters). Tiger salamander will grow up into a large salamander and will need a large land based, humid environment.

Bait? Tiger salamanders are extinct in Ontario. Send some over! :lol:
