View Description
Have you ever seen an axolotl? What happens when ants and an axolotl mix? Do you even know how to pronounce 'axolotl'? Join us for another episode of discovery as we learn about the peculiar, endearing, and incredible ways of an amphibian which has gone close to extinct in its natural range. Our newest Antiverse guest comes to us by way of need. You see, the resident crayfish (Emperor Sapphire) which used to keep the waters (the Golden Springs) of our Yellow Crazy Ant colony (the Golden Empire) clean, has outgrown his domain. So, to take his place, is a new axolotl, a mighty white aquadragon. Will the this axolotl settle into the Golden Springs and perform his cleaning duties just as well as our former crayfish? Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

You need something to keep the water under 70 degrees and probably at least a 20 gallon length is better then height. they are messy so they need weekly care. Small sand so the DONT ingest it. And it canโ€™t only go off ants it needs earthworms. Itโ€™s Stomach needs to be as wide as itโ€™s head if itโ€™s a female definitely a 20 gallon for they can get 12 inches long.

10 Gallons is the minimum for an Adult Axolotl. Juveniles can use a bit more space, however. Despite having all four legs grown and is at a sizable length, she is still considered a juvie which means they are super active compared to adults. 13g longs or 20g are perfect for them but when they are older (2-3 years) that 10 gallon would be more than enough as 80% of their day would be lazing in one spot followed by a roundabout for some food foraging. If you can upgrade the floor space to be an extra *3-4" in length and 1-2" in width* that'd be plenty of floor space for them to swim and hobble around! But above all else, make sure the parameters are always in check and that the temp is *cold.* You'd definitely need better filtration if you're planning on keeping them in something this small. Axolotls may be opportunistic eaters but they need to be conditioned to properly understand what is food to them. Handfeeding or using tongs to feed the "beast" some ants over a week or two should give them a taste for the insects. I handfeed mine gutloaded crickets and over time I would begin to drop them in at the surface. What was once a food they didn't have interest in, they learned to strike the moment a cricket hit the surface. But I can't confirm that this sort of hunting mannerism will carry from axie to axie. While the anecdote of them starring off into the outside world was touching, it was most likely interested more in it's reflection. Axolotls don't have the sharpest of sight and primarily see rudimentary shapes and colors. Being part of the mole salamander family, they never really developed an acute vision because in the wild they've gone most of their lives without even seeing the sun. Lastly, while ants are a fine supplement for a diet due to a softer exoskeleton and high protein/low fat content, it's not a staple for their diet. You'd need to feed them bloodworms or earthworms regularly to promote growth.

No. Just. No. Remove the axolotl immediately. That environment is far too small for it to live in. If you want to try using aquatic animals as 'cleaners', try this: the crayfish seemed to do well, but you did not give it nearly enough living space. Install a raised platform that runs the entire length of the ant enclosure and put in as big of a water box as possible with as much floor space as you can. Add a small layer of substrate and plant with small plants (java moss, baby tears, etc), a few stones or a piece of wood for a hide, increase the filtration AND circulation, and only then add in another crayfish.

I have a idea what if you build a home just like the one that the golden ants have fill it with water but put a tube cannecting the new cage to the golden springs so thir will be a whirlpool in the golden springs so any dead ants will get sent to the new cage. P.s. which is your favorite ant I'm thinking about getting a ant farm.

1: I think you should breed the axolotl and make a whole new home for it. means 2: You should put another crayfish into the Hacienda Del Dorado. Crayfish have very good filter feeding techniques using frawns and special mouthparts. This would keep the water cleaner. 3: The answer to the question is "Alt" means "Water", and "Xolotl" means "Dog" after the Aztec deity Xolotl, the Dog God. Not only do the axolotl have the gills on the outside of their heads, but, because they are amphibians, they have lungs for out-of-water breathing. As though their regenerate powers weren't enough, scientists have discovered that axolotl are 1,000 times more resistant to cancer than ANY OTHER ANIMALS! That is pretty crazy! Scientist are looking into that biological factor to see if they can use that information to create a vaccine like the flu shot so that humans are less susceptible to cancer, just like the axolotl.

While keeping the dragon at a "bare minimun" isn't really correct, being more wide than tall, those 10 gallons make for more space than a "cubic" acuarium with the same volume. However it would be nice if he could have a bit more of space. Maybe there's a way of building an extra pool connected to his home so he can have more space to roam and watch ants? Also it could include a few water plants to help with the depuration process. Whatever you do, I hope you do the best. Axolotl are a very endangered species and it would be absolutly terrible if something happened to the little guy. I would like you to keep it so we could watch more about this wonderful creature, but as always the animal's condition is the priority. In case you want to keep it, how about something like "Dragรณn Blanco" (White dragon) or "Quetzalcoatl" after the feathered snake (since his grills look like feathers and also it's a species endemic from Mexico)? And also, that soil looks like the one from the beetles, right? Plus, the question of what ability does the axolotl have would be answered with their fantastic regenerative capacities, being able to even regrow parts of their brains!

Question of the week answer, Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a human fish, it is not a fish, but an amphibian. The species was originally found in several lakes, such as Lake Xochimilco underlying Mexico City. Axolotls are unusual among amphibians in that they reach adulthood without undergoing metamorphosis

Are you really sure Axolotl's are suitable for scavenging already dead insects? Crayfish, shrimps etc are scavengers therefore will eat already dead ants, but amphibians are not scavengers. I'm sure it'll eat moving insects or sinking ones, but it wont eat already dead or sunken ants. You need to get a different species because they're not detritivores they're predators.

-Your axolotl is female. -She most likely wasn't staring at the "kingdom" she was looking at her reflection. My axolotl, Toothless does this all the time -She needs clean water -She needs cold water -She needs a bigger aquarium -She needs much more food than ants. I use 2-3 shrimp pellets for Toothless. Bloodworms and earthworms are really fatty and shouldn't be used as a regular food, but rather as a treat. -Ants could bite and hurt her. -The water filter shouldn't make such a strong current. The axolotl should barely be able to feel it. -Her left hand/arm is obviously injured in some way, as she holds it back often and tries not to use it. -Her environment is very bright as well, axolotls love darker hiding places. I'm very disappointed in you for this. You should've done better research to give your axolotl an amazing life as you do with your ants. She is not a vacuum cleaner or a garbage disposal. She is a beautiful animal. Please fix this for the darling axolotl, as she does not deserve such ill treatment. Thank you.

I think it needs a bigger home also I'm not sure that it's going to actually eat any ants at that size it needs more meaty foods at that stage like bloodworms, earth worms , chopped fish or one your roaches. I hate to say this but the it's also probably not going to do real well in that container because of the bottom it needs either a bare bottom or a very fine substrate to avoid impactions. It will also be really hard to keep that little bit of water stable with all the dead ants and metabolic waste from our new dragon and it will make quite a bit of waste it's self.

Axolotls possess a few unique abilities, they have full limb regeneration, expert aquatic abilities and are one of the smartest amphibian organisms. I think you should do what you feel is best for the axolotls heath even if it means relocation. Dont get rid of it, but make it its own private terrarium. I have a question too. What do you do if your ant terraruim gets mold? My tarantuals get mold pretty often because their terrarium must stay dampened because its an asian species. Do ant terrariums even get mold? Name the axolotl black eyes white dragon from yugioh. I said black eyes because unfortunately it doesnt have blue eyes. Sorry for the essay i have typed for you.

What about putting a couple of mollies or platies, or even some larger tetras, in the golden springs? Theyโ€™ll eat the dead ant bodies, wonโ€™t foul the water to the point the plants canโ€™t keep up, and will maintain their population size. Plus, if you end up with more than the springs can handle, a half hour in the freezer will give you a new treat for the ants.

I'm glad you're moving it. The ants are too small for it to eat, the water won't be cold enough, and they are social too so you could get it a buddy in a bigger tank, and it will become attached to you! It's recommended to keep them on bare bottom. My cat got mine, and she lost a gill, broke her leg, her tail was shredded, one of her eyes punctured... my boyfriend thought she was dead when he found her on the floor, but she was still wet so I put her in water straight away and... she was alive. I had to fridge her for part of her healing process, and It took months, but her leg and gill are healed on their own now, and the only evidence is some red edges on her tail where it's still healing and a murkey eyeball. My cat really got her good, she was lethargic for a long time but she's back to her happy self 4 months later! She can't see out one side of her head though so I have to put the food on her right side so she sees it. She gets impacted by sand easily and needs water changes fairly often because they are MESSY eaters. They are great pets, but really not suited as a antiverse water beast. Lots of people have already said that though of course, who are better at keeping axolotls than me. Anyways, mine is an albino with blue eyes and red frills too! She was named Inuyasha when I thought she was a boy (dog demon, because axolot's other name is mudpuppy) but now I'm thinking of renaming her something else. Their healing ability really is amazing and I'm lucky my cat didn't bite into her sides harder or he could have punctured something important! Oh one last thing, when moving an axolotl it's safest to use your hands rather than a net, or a small container with a lid. Nets can scratch their delicate skin.
