actually i saved mines life from getting squished by machinary at the air force academy while my dad was at work and my friend who works in the forestry office says that since it wasn't taken out of it's habitat or sold it was fine also he's the one who has it now so if they wanna do anything about it thats them i was gonna release it in nature anyway but he talked me into letting him have it i just didn't want the poor thing to get squished plus it was completely dry and skinny when i got it so i got it fat and healthy before i did anything i'm more worried about people locally releasing koi into our ponds than me recuing one from death since koi seem to love eating the poor thingsMight want to be careful. I'm pretty sure MD has regulations against keeping eastern tigers. Barreds aren't on the list though. I'm not too keen on going against state wildlife regulations or collecting through various states. I think tigers are also protected in Colorado as well. A lot of these salamanders can actually use the protection and I fully support these regulations. Not trying to flame anyone, just how I feel.
aww i love axolotls they're super cute i've always wanted an albino one also i like saying their names it's fun to say axolotlJust did a trade and got 4 axolotls from a reptile show. Two are wild color, a leucistic and the other is a golden albino. Very neat little aquatic salamanders.
wow! those are very cool,awesome sp.My kids:
Amybstoma mavortium diaboli
I've tried keeping redbacks & Ensatina before, failing miserably. Would love to take a shot at Taricha, but they're so locally plentiful that it seems pointless.
These two turned up under a rubbish heap yesterday, brought in for modeling & released under an old woodpile.
No, thankfully they're still babies. I had an adult but she passed away and she was docile. I saw a pic of one showing it's teeth. Pretty awesome looking for an amphibian! Like a legged piranha.Zerg- those arboreals are awesome. ever been bit by one? heard they can give a pretty nasty bite as adults. have you thought about using just hatched roaches? b. lateralis seem to be pretty small and with a colony they would be readily available.
