The Axolotl is also called the Mexican salamander. Known colloquially as a “walking fish”, it’s actually not a fish but an amphibian.
Minimum loan period is 1 week, maximum loan period is 3 weeks. Each loan animal is provided with food for the loan period, tank and a “How to Keep” sheet.
Our loan axolotls must be taken straight to your school/kindy/childcare after collection for tank set-up and not kept at home overnight.
We recommend our members do a full risk assessment for the loan acknowledging the individuality of each classroom environment and the students therein.
Please CALL us to arrange all loans, booking is essential, with 24 hours notice required.
Please note our hot weather policy – we will not allow water animals to be transported in temperatures above 30°C. If this is forecast we will call to make alternative arrangements.
