Loves: Meet Otis!

So I was sick yesterday (stupid digestive disorder) and didn’t get a chance to share our fun news. We added a new member to our family over the weekend after attending the reptile show. He is a tiny, baby albino axolotl!!

We named him Otis. Yes after Otis Driftwood because due to our axie’s look we could not resist. His coloring and gills reminded us too much of Otis’ look and mutton chops in House of 1000 Corpses ha ha. To top it off they are meat eaters and he is in his cannibalistic stage right now ha ha. If we were to put another axolotl in his tank they would try to eat each other. Fitting…. I think so ha ha. We had come up with a bunch of different names and when I suggested Otis my husband Frank immediately shook his head in agreement ha ha.

We already have a 10 gallon tank and aquarium ornaments and things but we have to gradually move him into that one once he is bigger. He is in a small tank right now because he is only about 1.5 – 2 inches long and we have to make sure he eats so he grows. He literally is a tiny baby. In a big tank he might have issues finding his food etc. It will be fun to get to actually raise this little guy.

We also of course spoiled Vlad (the red crested gecko we picked up at the reptile show last year) and got him a new really cool vine for his little tropical paradise (aka his tank).

Frank spoiled me by getting me this killer snake ring!!
