Anderson's Salamander
Dartfrog-produced c/b 2014 5cm+ grown-on juveniles
Stunning neotenic species found only in and around one lake called Lago Zacapu in north-western Michoacan, Mexico, at 2,000m altitude. Grows up to 25cm and feeds on just about anything it can swallow including worms, axolotl pellets, small fish, pieces of lean raw beef to name but a few. Avoid pellets containing iodine otherwise it will metamorphose something that is thought not to happen in the wild. Keep as for axolotl's - ideally clean, filtered, gently aerated water with plenty of submerged rocks and decorative wood and large grade gravel base. Collection recommended. These unsexed juveniles are the result of a successful spawning by our adults in March. They are avidly taking live bloodworm, tubifex, chopped worm, Assellus and Gammarus and pieces of finely chopped fish. We recommend collection although we can send by TNT at the buyers' risk.
