Salamandra salamandra

This is a discussion on Salamandra salamandra within the Fire Salamanders (Salamandra) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; I purchased two Salamandra salamandra. Here are some pics of them and their vivarium...

Fire Salamanders (Salamandra) The first salamanders described, this diverse genus of species and subspecies can be found throughout Europe and the Near-East. They are the animals that first come to mind when most people hear the word "salamander".

I love that picture of the salamander up against the glass! One of mine is very, very aggressive, and so whenever I walk by it immediately goes to the side of the terrarium and occasionally walks up so high that it topples over sideways.

I always like seeing a natural landscaped terrarium. Pleasing on the eye and no doubt a bit of enrichment for your salamanders too DdvythAF.
Schmiggle I wish my lot were a bit more outgoing....I rarely see them at all.

I love the setup! Let me know if you are ever in Utah, I will hire you to design some setups for me. I could also show you a few herping spots. Again, excellent job!

Blackbun, one of mine is very, very shy, I think it's just basically a personality thing. I just make sure to set up the tank so that each one has a hide that faces out, so at least when they hide, I can still see a lump. :)

Thanks for that Schmiggle. The shyest animals I have are all fastuosas. I bought these as adults so rather than a subspecies thing it could be due to rearing and conditioning. Some days I never see them and the only reason I don't get concerned is I can see their food has been eaten. Because I too use naturally furnished terraria, I don't like to go in there lifting up moss or the carved up logs.
