Axanthic

Axanthic Axolotl Morph

Axanthic axolotls have no iridophores (sparkly flecks) and no xanthophores (yellow pigment cells). Their eyes are not shiny. They have a cooler tone to them without the underlying yellow like many other morphs have. Axanthics, unless they are white like a leucistic or albino, or melanoid, usually have more prominent spots. The darker axanthics may appear purple, rose (if copper) or gray.

Axanthics are one of the most sought after varieties, and also one of the hardest to find. We have them occasionally in our shop, so check back often to find when they are available or subscribe to our email newsletter.
