Axolotl for Sale
At exceptional pricing, we have captive-bred axolotls for sale. Axolotls are a type of neotenic salamander, which means they spend their entire lives under water (where they are gilled). They can grow up to 18 inches in length, although 8 to 14 inches is by far the more typical range. We also sell axolotl eggs that are guaranteed to be fertile so you can hatch them yourself!
The popular pet axolotl will captivate you for hours on end. Our 100% live arrival guarantee is given immediately when you purchase your pet axolotl from us.
Don’t miss our premium axolotl care sheet for more information on keeping this fascinating aquatic pet salamander. We offer various morphs and sizes (babies to adults) at different times of the year, including wild type, albino, leucistic, white albino, GFP (glows under blacklight), melanoid, mosaic, copper, and dalmation.
This species will eat live earthworms, waxworms, frozen bloodworms, salmon pellets, and live fish. Interestingly, they can regenerate limbs, and even brain material, which is why axolotls are regularly studied by researchers around the world.
Axolotls originated from just two high elevation lakes in Mexico, but they are currently critically endangered in the wild. They can live for 10-15 years in captivity, and are very low maintenance pets. You’ll want to keep your’s in a fully aquatic aquarium or tank with plastic (or live) plants and a gravel (larger stones) or bare-bottomed substrate.
The axolotls for sale on our website are always 100% captive bred in the United States at the Frog Ranch, which means their genetics are unparalleled.
Sexing Your Axolotl
Please feel free to request a male or female salamander (or any combination thereof) when you purchase our medium and adult sized axolotls, but please be aware that we cannot guarantee the sex. However, we can guarantee that someone very experienced with amphibians will attempt to select the specific salamander(s) you are requesting.
Hatching Your Axolotl Eggs
Your fertilized eggs will arrive safely, and should be put into a shallow container of water at or below room temperature. 68F is ideal, but a few degrees difference above or below this mark is fine. They will hatch in 4-14 days. Feed your baby axolotls baby brine shrimp, daphnia, or microworms. They will soon accept ground food pellets.
