Default Re: Ensatinas

I disagree about them being secretive. I've been keeping some Ensatina eschscholtzii platensis that I collected with a fishing license back in March. They don't hide as much as I would have thought. I will grant you they don't move around much during the day, but they are nocturnal like most salamanders. They really come alive when you put some food in there. And that long tongue is phenomenal!
