Raising Your Axolotl

A Wild Type axolotl has a combination of greens, browns, blacks, and just about any other color, with speckles of shiny gold iridophore pigments.

One of the most popular morphs among axolotl enthusiasts, Leucistic axolotls—also known as “Lucys”—are known for their pale pink coloring.

GFP axolotls carry the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) gene. This characteristic causes them to glow when exposed to ultraviolet and blacklights. 

Despite having characteristics similar to Leucistic morphs, a defining trait of Albino axolotls is their eyes, which are red or transparent in color.
