    If you’re gonna get anymore salamander species in the future you should get spotted salamanders!! They’re amazing pets and they’re the best little dirt monsters ever!
    (Here’s mine)

    Nice addition, never noticed cool they actually looked! Never knew people really kept them as pets since they're thought of as pretty big pests. But then again, people keep Burmese pythons and they're considered a pest in Florida....anyways, have fun with the little guy!

    Sadly due to "good ole humans" quite a few animals have been transported to where they should never have been and unfortunately it's both the native wildlife and the invasive animals that suffer because of it.

    Nice looking sally! I spent a few years researching their cousins (spotted and marble salamanders), but I've always been more interested in tiger salamanders. This thread makes me want to go get one right now haha

    Stheno is absolutely. She's so comical and will come out if I'm in the room and she's hungry to get my attention.

    If you ever have trouble with your amphs throwing up earthworms, it might be because some of them have bristles that help them move through holes. You can feel those especially on nightcrawlers if you hold them kind of tight and they try to crawl. I've had amphs throw them up before, I think the bristles can be irritating to their gut when they are trying to crawl around in there. I'm gonna get me some tigers again some day. btw found a good pic of earthworm bristles.
