Besides Cricket, we have another salamander that we got from Daddy's work. It is a grown Tiger Salamander which looks like this:
We named it Marble.
Cricket is turning into an adult Tiger salamander, so he's not an Axolotl. I started an earthworm farm since he and Marble both eat earthworms and the ones from the store cost about $3.50 for two dozen! I think it is working because I saw a baby earthworm today. It was about 1/2 an inch long. I am keeping my earthworms in my snail habitat. I got a new container for my snails. It is about twice as big as the other one and it has a mesh lid. It had been used for a hermit crab and I got it at a garage sale for $3.00. It's about the size of a ten gallon aquarium.
I am also breeding snails. I think I have 11, but three aren't old enough to breed and I'm going to let one of the older ones go. 4 of my snails have laid eggs! I'll post about it when they hatch, which should be in 1-1 1/2 weeks.
