STANLEY

Stanley came to live with us
in 2015 and, even though he is friendly, he cannot be touched or held. In the wild Axolotls are almost extinct so Stanley is a great animal to see and learn about. We bought Stanley when we saw him kept in a tiny bowl in a pet shop and felt so sorry for him. He now has a large tank and seems much happier.
