    I hope so too. One thing that gives me a little bit of hope is that my dog was never a big digger, so this makes me wonder if maybe the salamander was already dead and out of it's burrow. This was many years ago though, so I never got to look at it for myself.

    That'd be nice if that's the case.

    It wouldn't surprise me. He was more of a barker than a killer. All we'd have to do is say the words "bird" or "squirrel" and he'd be at the door in a heartbeat barking loud enough to wake the neighborhood. :hilarious: He even chased/barked a bear up a tree in his older years.

    Thankfully with a captive one, you should have it set up so it's safe from meddlesome puppies. Although Typhon is so massive I wouldn't be surprised if he's evolved to learn basic human technology at this point. :hilarious:

    But back on point, I wish you the best of luck with Stheno. She's so pretty!

    You may want to cut that worm in half next time, it's a bit much to take in :D
    Amazing what they can stow away though. Axolotl are just as greedy, I'm looking at them like, 'maybe this worm is a bit too....oh. nevermind' :hilarious:

    Axolotl are salamanders that haven't left the water so I'm not surprised.

    That was a hellbender cold blood found! I had a axolotl that was 12", I wouldn't be real surprised to see a 13"er but over that, prob not. Yeah salamanders rock, so weird, "Whaaa?!, that's more related to a frog than a lizard?! ....get out!" I've never found one in the wild. I found the Smallmouth, sirens, the Slimy, some newts but the Tigers just weren't around where I lived, the range maps says they were there but I had no luck. Basin, do you know the locality info on yours? They are bigger, smaller, yellow, barred, etc., depends on the locality.

    That's a really cool looking salamander, enjoy the new pet. I still don't have any type of reptile/amphibian but I want some in the future...
