Bello Axolotl

As you can see in the above photo the gill stalks on the right are developing into thick, pink stalks. 


While the gill stalks on the left are thin, and more yellow in color.

 Golden Mosaic Axolotl

This special sub-adult Axie is a combination of a Golden Albino and a Golden Melanoid Albino.

What is the difference you may ask? 


Golden Albino Axolotls are a uniform yellow in varying shades. 
They do not have white markings.(As you can see this Axie has white on its body so it cannot be a simple albino)The golden albino's can also have iridophores.


Golden Melanoid Albino Axolotl's look a lot like albino's except they have a lot of white. 
The Melanoid gene causes pigment loss resulting in the white. Melanoids also cannot have eye rings or iridophores.

The reflective eye ring marking it as Non Melanoid

As you can see this Axolotl has the body print of a Melanoid.


It also has the eye rings and iridophores of an Golden Albino.
Technically this color scheme cannot exist but here it is and living proof that Mosaics can be reproduced intentionally.

I acknowledge this Axolotl is still a sub-adult who may become a uniform yellow like a normal Golden Albino would, so we will watch as it matures.



Chimera vs Mosaic Axolotl

Chimera Axolotls are not quite understood in the breeding community but one thing is clear a mosaic is NOT a chimera.

Mosaics should carry the same reproduction rate as any twin (in my opinion) and from what I have seen, they do.
