Dicamptodon Breeding, has it been done?

This is a discussion on Dicamptodon Breeding, has it been done? within the Pacific Giant Salamanders (Dicamptodon) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; If you mean Mario, he has neotenic larvae but he hasn't bred them yet....

Pacific Giant Salamanders (Dicamptodon) Found only in the Northwest of the United States of America, the (currently) 4 species of this genus are the largest and heaviest land-living salamanders in the world.

Lisa8! This is incredible! This species courtship and breeding behavior is little documented! you should video or record it! SERIOUSLY! This is incredible! Not much at all is known about this species' courtship and breeding, and if you were able to get a video of it, it could seriously help herpetologists and biologists out I believe. How do you do it?!?!? Pleas share some info! it would be great. I am going to go puzzle and ponder and get confused and freak out for a while. - my reaction- -Seth

I highly doubt anybody in Europe has ever bred them and Janusz is right too
I also doubt "Lisa8" ever bred them. Let us see proofs - but Lisa8 was online the last time when she posted her last reply to this topic.

Why would anybody lie about that? Annoying. Your probably right. Ok, now I have more motivation to find breeding adults, or a female guarding eggs. I hate it when people do that.................

In some post on this forum someone suggested that Dicamptodon might be breeding underground in large aggregations if i remember correctly.

Red face Re: Dicamptodon Breeding, has it been done?

I appreciate the doubt about breeding these animals because it is not easy. I am a Ph.D. student at Oregon State University and I have been studying life history variables of Dicamptodon salamanders for many years.

If you actually did breed them, why haven't you told anybody? That doesn't make sense. Cause if you did breed them I would think you would know that very little is know about this species' courtship and breeding etc. And it seems like you would be proud to share info, pictures, videos etc. And I don't see why you wouldn't?

So please do, lets see all your pictures and videos and info then. Why not? -Seth

Really studying anything takes time. I run the risk of giving inaccurate information if I don't do it right. My goal is to help to preserve these critters and others within their ecosystems. I am getting ready to submit for publication and then I will post everything that I can.

I am excited for your publication. I think these are really fascinating animals. Also, I am hoping to get into the Veterinary program there at OSU :) Go Beavs!
