This is my new pet axolotl, Manuelo. The odd thing about both my pets is that I was not the one who named them. The people I was living with at the time in college gave Tony his name while I was out buying cat food and Manuelo was named by Tortoise. I thought it suited him since axolotls are also known as Mexican Walking Fish. Manuelo is translucent and is living in my largest vase, a gift from Pug. Tony is currently blissfully unaware of Manuelo's existence and since I'd like to keep it that way, Manuelo is living on one of my bookshelves.

I think I'm going to maybe get some smooth rocks or gravel to line the bottom of his vase and make it homier for him. Hope he likes living with me...better than dead I guess!
