What Happened to The 2020 Puppies?
During the pandemic, a whopping 23 million American households adopted a new pet. What happened to them?. During a time when many people were stuck inside, more people than ever chose to bring in a new pet. Now that people are returning to work in person they are debating what to do with their pets when they leave home. Thankfully, most of these pets are still in their homes, and their owners have no intention of rehoming them any time soon. Most people that brought in pets during this time have truly cherished them, and made them important parts of the family!

What Do Axolotls Eat?
Axolotls are definitely unique pets. They are neotenic salamanders, which means that they never go through metamorphosis, and they keep their juvenile features throughout their entire lives. Like most amphibians, they start their lives underwater, but since they never morph into having adult characteristics they continue to live underwater for their whole lives, which can be up to 15 years. They also have a remarkable ability to regenerate body parts. They can regenerate limbs within a few months, and they are even able to regenerate parts of their brain and spinal cord. They only originate from one lake complex in Mexico, Xochimilco, where they are critically endangered. Luckily axolotls in the pet trade today are captive bred, so keeping them as pets does not impact how many are left in the wild.
