Yes, you read right! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (both ErinDisaster) you'll know that we added to our family with 2 axolotls! I'm pretty psyched about it, and Brendan's completely enamoured with these guys. Ben and my mom came with me to pick up the tank and critters, but Ben fell asleep in the car so he hasn't seen them yet. Mom exlaimed "They're THAT big?!" when we set a bucket beside her. Apparently they're a bit larger for their species or something. Exciting times!
We have a black one and a white one. The black one is dominant, pretty active, and likes to chew the limbs off the poor white one. Currently the white one is missing his right arm, he just has a little nubbin in its place. They regenerate though, so that'll be fun to watch. I'm debating whether to name the black one Murderface...we'll see.
Take a look at the black axolotl!
Aaaaaand here's the video I shot.
Such delightful little guys. Eeeeeep!!!
