Artist's Description

I purchased Lottie on Thursday and today I chose a mate for him – Amber. I chose this name because the scientific name for Mexican walking fish is Ambystoma mexicanum.

Today i was able to get another great close-up shot of Lottie. Next up i will upload a photo of the two of them together. Amber is much more active and has been swimming up to the top of the tank and back down again, plus bulldozing her way through Lottie. They are like an old married couple already :)

Extra excitement today with the first hand-feeding of a meal worm to Lottie. I bought a pair of pincers that have a long handle so that I can hold the food in front of their mouths. They only have 10% vision apparently so they need a helping hand with their feeding. It was so thrilling to see Lottie bite at the meal worm and gulp it down. He also likes the frozen ‘community feed’ that I bought from the pet shop. I hope Lottie and Amber are very happy in their new home
