Default Re: Where are all the plethodontid keepers?

I have two A. lugubris and used to keep three B. attenuatus. I was planning on keeping only one A. lugubris because the other I found was stuck and injured, and I was planning on releasing him once I brought him up to a healthy weight and his broken arm healed. But they both have such a great personality. One of them has learned that the tongs I use to feed him has something to do with food and he will chase after it, flicking his tongue. The other one is like a monkey, climbing all over and even jumping from time to time. Their behavior is quite amusing and they have taken to captivity surprisingly well. The B. attenuatus I used to have did take food from tongs, but they were far more secretive and hated being exposed at all, so you would rarely see them.
