Axolotland - The Cutest Creatures You've Ever Seen

  • Published: 17 November 2018
  • 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. Hope you like this week's non-ant related (for a change) episode. Enjoy!

      🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ I feel like you just listened to the comments and didn’t bother googling anything or doing any other research.
      - they should be in a long tank NOT a cube one.
      -those are BOTH FEMALES
      -even if one of them WAS a female they would need separate tanks because they are most likely either siblings or products of inscest since you bought them both at the pet store, and if they did breed the eggs would need to be frozen to cull.
      -if they don’t have enough floor space or don’t get enough food they will mistake their tank mates leg or gills as food.
      -their body should be the size of their head or bigger.
      -you should be using liquid parameters test kits for them and not strips because those are inaccurate.

                                I cant believe you have to change the water every 2 days, why is that? is it because there is no filtration system installed or because of another reason?

                                              My school once had an Axolotl that was on its own so we got it another axolotl to keep it company. Then he ate it and then we decided he would have no more friends, and be alone for the rest of his life.

(In case you don't know, a Porcupuffer is an enemy from the Mario Universe that uses vacuum suction to try to swallow Mario whole! They're really annoying, actually, because they can one-shot you, even if you have a power up.)
