Snoozy the Axolotl was bought together with Slazy the Axolotl. My motivation to buy these Axolotls was to watch their strange appearance and behavior. It is very entertaining to watch them search for food with their almost blind white eyes and little hands and feet.
With their external gills they looked like dragons. There was no difference between the two Axolotls. The only difference where detectable when one of them ate too much. They're translucent so you can see their food in their stomach. Sometimes their appetite increased while they where too lazy to look for worms or little fish. They would often eat eachothers tail or limbs.
The limbs or pieces of tail grow back in a week or two because of their regenerative qualities. This was also a little bit entertaining to see. But it was also a bit discouraging that they often preferred to eat each others limbs instead of the fresh living food I bought for them.
Other then that it's fun to watch these strange underwater dragons live their hard to identify with lives.
