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).

I am partial to granulosa, mainly as it's the only ones I have

I also keep two species, torosa and rivularis. My group of torosa went aquatic when I got them and have stayed that way ever since. I have them in one of my larger display tanks; and I love to watch them "waddle-swim" around. Definitely one of my favorite species to watch.


Rivularis are damn beautiful looking; but also are one of the most secretive animals I keep. And I keep caecilians. Once in a blue moon I will catch them out looking to take a quick dip in the water dish or grab at bug; but otherwise it is a large tank with cork bark and moss in it.
