Greetings!  I had a quick question about axolotl husbandry.  We have a 
small number of animals that are missing limbs, presumably from eating each 
other.  They seem healthy otherwise.  Is this a serious problem or 
something that is commonly encountered?  What should we do to stop this 
from happening?  Should we keep individuals isolated?  Thanks.  Ramon
