JBL brings out axolotl food
24th March 2017

By Karen Pickwick



JBL has developed a new food for axolotls, which it says contains 2% fish oil to ‘achieve the correct protein-fat ratio of 5:1’.

A spokesman explained: “This prevents the oil from reaching the surface and means it can only be released during digestion. Modelled on the axolotl’s natural nutrition, freshwater fish meat (which is really something special!), amphipods and shrimps are used as the main ingredients. This way JBL NovoLotl is not only ideally suited for axolotl but also for many other amphibians such as African dwarf frogs and newts.”

Pearl sizes of 3mm are designed for amphibians of 10-25 cm, with pearls 5mm in diameter for animals from 18cm upwards.
