Default Re: Ensatinas

I keep 2 subspecies and I am hoping to add. I have Ensatina eschscholtzii oregonensis and Ensatina eschscholtzii xanhthoptica. If you want to join my social group please go to the link below Newt and Salamander Forum - Ensatina Interest Group
I keep mine on moss and Eco Earth, they do great on it. I have logs and bark as hides. Nobody sells them that I know, and the only place I know it's legal to sell is Oregon, I also think you need a special permit to sell them there too. I wild collected them and I know some people who have kept all 7 subspecies. You can go to the California Fish and Game website to get the current CA regulations. I know russ and paris breeds and keeps them. If you want to start another thread to discuss more about the topic feel free. I also started an Ensatina keeping blog on
What I Keep (ensatina):
1 Gravid Female Tailess Ensatina eschscholtzii xanthoptica
3 Ensatina eschscholtzii oregonensis (2 gravid)
