The Beautiful Copper Axolotl

Copper axolotls are prized for their unique coppery color, often accompanied by lovely dot patterns. They are generally lighter than the more common wild type axolotls and the tone is different. There are several sub-varieties of coppers, including axanthic, GFP, melanoid and high leopard. This gorgeous morph is generally much harder to find than the others. Fun fact: the copper variety is actually an albino variant. You will notice under the right lighting that their pupils shine red, though this can be tricky to detect.

We occasionally list coppers for sale on our site when we have them available and at the appropriate size. Due to seasonality, you may wish to check back frequently or sign up to our mailing list if you do not see any current availabilities. Once they are listed they usually go very quickly.
