Default Re: Does anyone keep slender salamanders (Batrachoseps)

I don't keep Batrachoseps, but I do find them frequently on herping trips. They are extremely common even months after it rains. You can usually find them in oak forests or redwood forests. Sometimes even in urban areas. It seems like they do like to burrow, because when uncovered they dig into the ground like worms. These are just my observations from the field, but someone who keeps this species might be able to provide more help.

I did learn a lot about them from this care sheet:
Marc Staniszewski's Slender Salamander Care Sheet
