Default Quick Tong Feeding Video - Tiger Salamander

This is Bertha, my female tiger salamander. I took a quick video of her eating from the tongs yesterday, thought some of you might like to see it. It's nothing special, just a waste of 2 minutes really :P

As you can see she responds to the movement of my finger, but quickly loses interest when she realizes it's not food. When I pick up the feeding tongs it's a different story. She recognizes them and gets very excited at the prospect of eating XD

I feed her an adult lobster roach in this video. Nauphoeta cinera. Roaches make great feeders because they are more nutritious than crickets, don't chirp, don't bite, and don't stink like crickets do.

It's funny how she ignores your finger at the glass, but goes nuts for the tongs
