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.

Meet Rogue...

She was a Christmas present from Mason..

She wasn't very tame when we got her, as she'd not been handled for her first six months, but she's getting a lot friendlier :)

She's about a year old now...

She's still quite dinky hey? Very sweet. So when do they develop their stink glands? I guess it's after 6 months if she's safe to cuddle..

She's almost full grown now, not much more growing to do..

Their spray glands are developed pretty much straight away, they're able to spray as tiny babies! She's still fully loaded, but has only sprayed once since we've had her, and that was on the first day we brought her home..

She'd just met the dogs, and was trying to get between the sofa cushions.. Mason tried to pull her out, and she sprayed!

It's not that bad.. just like strong burnt garlic..
