Mason Exotics


I like my axolotl
I keep her in a bottle
And if I’m feeing cross or mad
Or down or hurt or bad
I pull the cork and let her out
With fiery roar and shout
She flashes sparks and bellows loud
And throws her weight about
And when the monster’s scared
my friends made them hide upstairs
I catch the raging, stamping beast…and put her right back there.
Axolotl in a bottle, I really like you such a lotl.

the axolotls arrived on saturday.... 12 of them...

i had one, Mason had 2, and the other 9 (7 females, and 2 males... we think.. ) are now looking for new homes...

they are currently living in my basement... and need a cold water setup, with a filter (but not too much water flow) and eat bloodworms, earthworms and prawns...

and are going for the bargain price of £10 each :)
they are a different colour variation... being a cross between black and wild type...

I don't remember where those ones came from, it was about 5 years ago!
How about Really Useful Boxes though? We keep a lot of things in those, they have loads of different sizes and they can be adapted for most things. :)
