Does anyone know where to buy axolotl's in Minnesota? I know there's a few people in Wisconsin that sell them, but I haven't heard of anyone in Minnesota breeding them.

i thought i saw a post on craigslist a few months back where the guy said he bred them but doesnt anymore so he was getting rid of his and if i remember correctly he was located south. but im not 100% sure though. not sure if you are gonna find any good luck searching.I've always wanted a salamander as a pet and these are very unique looking ones that i would like to keep one day.

I had breezed into A Wet Pet in Apple Valley the other day to kill some time and there was a Axolotl in the back corner. At quick glance it looked like a melanoid or wild-type coloration.

A buddy of mine was selling some a while back. I'll contact him to see if he still has some.

Axolotls are not a salamander. They are 100% aquatic, not sure if you knew that. I actually hace nine that are about three inches long I had gotten from some one off craigslist in St. Paul. They are an awesome animal! I would reccomend doing research on them before you actaully get one, I have had mine for a few months and I am still learning things! I also know of a great forum all about them! :)
