Wild Type Axolotl
We have captive bred axolotls for sale at unbeatable prices. Axolotls are a species of neotenic salamander, meaning they will remain aquatic (gilled) their entire lives. They can attain a size of up to 18 inches, but 8 to 14 inches is much more common. We also offer guaranteed fertilized axolotl eggs so you can hatch them yourself!
Axolotls are crowd-pleasing pets that will fascinate you for hours on end. When you buy your pet axolotl from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee.
Don't miss our premium axolotl care sheet for more information on keeping this fascinating aquatic pet salamander. We offer various morphs and sizes (babies to adults) at different times of the year, including wild type, albino, leucistic, white albino, GFP (glows under blacklight), melanoid, mosaic, copper, and dalmation.
This species will eat live earthworms, waxworms, frozen bloodworms, salmon pellets, and live fish. Interestingly, they can regenerate limbs, and even brain material, which is why axolotls are regularly studied by researchers around the world.
Axolotls originated from just two high elevation lakes in Mexico, but they are currently critically endangered in the wild. They can live for 10-15 years in captivity, and are very low maintenance pets. You'll want to keep your's in a fully aquatic aquarium or tank with plastic (or live) plants and a gravel (larger stones) or bare-bottomed substrate.
The axolotls for sale on our website are always 100% captive bred in the United States at the Frog Ranch, which means their genetics are unparalleled.
Sexing Your Axolotl
Please feel free to request a male or female salamander (or any combination thereof) when you purchase our medium and adult sized axolotls, but please be aware that we cannot guarantee the sex. However, we can guarantee that someone very experienced with amphibians will attempt to select the specific salamander(s) you are requesting.
Hatching Your Axolotl Eggs
Your fertilized eggs will arrive safely, and should be put into a shallow container of water at or below room temperature. 68F is ideal, but a few degrees difference above or below this mark is fine. They will hatch in 4-14 days. Feed your baby axolotls baby brine shrimp, daphnia, or microworms. They will soon accept ground food pellets.
Shipping Your Axolotl
We charge a flat $49.99 for overnight delivery to your doorstep, regardless of the number of reptiles, amphibians, or inverts you buy. This species ships very well. Please read our shipping information page before ordering. Sorry, we do not ship internationally (U.S. only), and we cannot ship axolotls into California. Our delivery schedule can be found below:

- Why buy reptiles?We offer exotic reptiles for sale online at absolute rock-bottom prices, which means we make these fascinating animals available to you affordably as pets, or even to start your own reptile breeding project. We are reptile enthusiasts who believe captive breeding is integral to the future of the market, as it not only helps protect wild herp populations, but is an incredibly rewarding experience that tends to intensify one's passion for these amazing prehistoric creatures. Whether you buy a snake, lizard, turtle, tortoise, or alligator, we are driven to provide the highest quality live reptiles for sale.
- Why buy amphibians?Amphibians are generally slower-moving, and have uniquely moist skin which means they are never far from a source of water. Their life cycle is nothing short of incredible: they hatch in water, spend weeks or months in metamorphosis, then become either terrestrial or remain primarily water bound. Some salamanders even breathe through their skin! Our live amphibians for sale online include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Some are huge, some are small, and virtually all are amazing to observe in captivity. When you buy amphibians from us, you can rest assured they are fully guaranteed to arrive alive and in great condition. Why not start an amphibian breeding project today?
- Why buy feeder insects?Reptile and amphibian food should be varied, which is why we offer an array of feeder insects for sale. It's always far more cost effective to buy feeder insects in bulk, which often saves up to 70% off pet store prices. Plus, the feeders are delivered right to your doorstep. We offer live crickets for sale, as well as mealworms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and now even lizards, all at the lowest possible prices. Our reptile and amphibian feeder insects and lizards include a guarantee of live arrival.
