Default Re: Whatís your favorite type of Taricha?

All of them. I keep two of the Taricha species and they are both cool. Iíve also seen the other two species that I donít keep. Taricha in general are a great genus, I canít choose just one.

T. g. mazamae isnít a legitimate subspecies. There are animals with dark markings found at various areas throughout the Cascade mountain range in Oregon and Washington, and elsewhere. Most scientists donít consider it a ssp anymore for that reason. In reality, T. granulosa with dark markings arenít all that uncommon. Iíve found plenty of them, and know of populations that have a high number of dark marked individuals (outside of Crater Lake).
