Description

Class Experience

At the time of this class listing I own:
5 adult axolotls
3 juvenile axolotls 
over 200 babies.

The amount I own does change frequently.   I personally keep 5 adults, and have the three juveniles I am raising to keep along with three of the babies.   I breed axolotls to help try and keep the genetics alive and well.  These beautiful creatures are struggling in the wild.   Their are groups working to make their wild habitat safe again so they can be reintroduced. It is our hope that one day some of our babies can be reintroduced into the wild and help make the thrive again.

I also rescue axolotls that need rehabilitation.   
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will briefly discuss some injuries that an axolotl can get if not properly cared for.  Such as legs or gills get bit off or damaged by tank mates, fungus growth, ect. We will not see any graphic photos or images.  I do have a rescued axolotl that is missing his front legs.   They may see him during the introduction of my axolotls.  If they do it will be pointed out that he is missing those legs, but it is not graphic at all, just little stubs like a person with an amputee.    I know some children are sensitive to animal injuries, but I also feel it is important to address the negative impact of improper care. I do mention keep an upbeat positive attitude about their "injuries" by stating things like he's doing great now, or look how much difference proper care can make.
