Default Re: What Is Your Favorite Genus of North American Plethodontids?

Very hard to tell, Plethodontids are sure very very nice, rare sight... at leasts here over Europe.

I've got to say my favourite genus are:

Plethodon*
Pseudotriton
Ensatina
Batrachoseps*
Eurycea*
Aneides (mostly aeneus)
Desmognathus*

Being the ones marked with ' * ' the genus I've already kept/keep; species being the following:

Plethodon cinereus 1.1.1
Plethodon cylindraceus 0.0.3
Plethodon nettingi 0.0.1
________________________
Batrachoseps attenuatus 0.0.4
________________________
Eurycea cirrigera 0.1.0
________________________
Desmognathus fuscus 1.1.0

Sadly B. attenuatus long gone... Such nice critters... Were my very first Plethodontid and not one of the most easy to care for... I wish I had that chance back with the knowledge I grew with other species since then and try it out once again.

Even so, If all goes steady and well, I'll recieve 3 Pseudotriton ruber schenki by the end of the year witch will be a very cool adittion to the collection... I wish they were more!
