Hello everyone have any of you had the pleasure of caring for these beautiful fun amphibians? If not this is toothless she's a melanoid green florescent protein axolotl that exhibits dwarfism. She's 10 months old and mostly fully grown at this point.

I snagged one of those about a foot long with a treble hook in a river in central Ohio when I was about 14. I had NO IDEA what the hell it was. We had no google to look it up on. One of my teachers told me what it was. Mine was rather plain compared to those there, but I do not think they were native to Ohio and had the impression they were tropical in nature. I figure someone probably released it and I happened to drag it back in. It lived for quite a while in a tank, but I did not know how to care for it and didn't even know what it was until shortly before it died. It liked Earthworms and meal worms but only ate sporadically. Never seen another one like it in Ohio after that. I thought it was a giant spotted salamander because they are native there, but don't usually get that big

What it is is a salamander tadpole. The ones we have as pets have evolved to not produce the hormone to change into a salamander. In the wild northern tiger salamanders lay eggs in slow moving water or seasonal pools. A few of those eggs hatch and one or two might find that they have gotten large enough to not need to goto land to find enough food or the for some reason it didn't goto land. They can sexual reproduce as a tadpole as well. What you found was most likely the northern tiger salamander in noetency so it's still larvel. And earthworms are the staple food so great job! How long did it live for you?
