Welcome to Axolotl.org, a Web site where you can learn all about axolotls. If you’re not sure, an axolotl is an amphibian, like a salamander, to be specific. It originated in Mexico and I happen to think they are ridiculously cute. What do you think?!
You will find navigation along the top of the page under the title of Axolotls. The sections are:
Home – This is the main page you load into. It is also where you will find a great introduction to axolotls. I learned a lot about them from this section, which surprised me, because it was the starting page and you usually have to browse through a site to learn about its subject matter. That’s just one cool thing about this site!
Housing – This section discusses how to set up an aquarium for keeping axolotls in captivity. It breaks it down step by step and is quite thorough with the information provided. You will even find a link here to a forum, should you have more specific questions about setting up an aquarium.
Feeding – Here you will learn about the axolotl’s diet. You will find several choices discussed here, along with several pictures.
Requirements – This section discusses water conditions, companions, pH balance and temperature.
Breeding – Here you will learn about breeding axolotls, the kind of aquarium setup you need, how to care for the eggs, how to rear the young and much more. I found this section to be fairly informative. It was particularly interesting to me that albino females lay white eggs, while other females lay brown eggs. Simply fascinating!
