Yes, but technically snott otter (!!??) is right- females can develop small bristles along their lip, but not up on their face (and the bristles don't branch)

I'd like to know why some males develop long flowing bristles, while others grow branched bristles?

Snott otter is another name for the hellbender salamander which is a crazy looking animal!! Lol. I have seen females with small bristles on their lips but they are very small and yes they don't branch. I have also seen males with very large trees (the size and complexity of their bristles) and very small trees. My thought is that is all genetics that are passed down.

I will have to get a recent photo of her and post it today. I just did a water change yesterday so today the tank should be settled.

(Don't mind my messy tank bottom in the one pic. I took it in the middle of vacuuming and apparently every bit of debris wanted to settle in that one area.)
If i could find these for a decent size i would get them. If you ever plan on breeding let me know! Theyve still got a long way to go though :/
