| | Re: What kind of lid for Salamandra?
Some of my Salamandra are kept in the large plastic tubs previously mentioned, but the ones I keep in tanks have no lids, just a small perspex lip around the inside top, which is mainly to stop live food items escaping.
The tanks are set up with damp substrate at one end along with small water bowl, going to completely dry substrate at the other, and interstingly, both the S s fastuosa, and the Ss gallaica that I keep in seperate 3 foot tanks, always stay in the hides at the dry ends.
The S s terrestris that I kept in a converted coal shed with a flloor
space of 5 foot by 6 foot were exacty the same, they have various hides available around both the dry and damp areas of the shed, but always chose to hide away and sleep in the dry.
All of my sals do like to enter the waster bowls at times to use as a toilet though.
