Hynobiid Salamanders (Hynobiidae) This group of Far Eastern salamanders are becoming increasingly popular in captivity, and thanks to the captive breeding efforts of one European hobbyist in particular (you know who I mean), they are becoming easier and easier to acquire.

One of my dream species! Very interesting to hear that they're not agressive, everytime i read about them, it's always like "they're the most agressive caudate ever, more agressive than Pachytriton and Paramesotriton". Could you please describe the way you keep them?

They are surely incredible! I love how tall their tails get at the end. Incredibly nice looking overall caudate :)
Yes Peter Id like also a few descriptions on maintenance on these if that's not much to ask for .


p.s. by the way sent you an email from another email account have you received it?
Cheers,

weird, strange, mysterious creatures!

That first pic looks like they were engaged in some ancient pachynobian ritual. Circle the amphora. Maybe a earthworm summoning ritual. Did you hear any chanting when you took the pic?

As a drunken friend once said "I like them because they´re ugly".
The first picture is almost unsettling, hehe, if their position had been perfect, all looking in the same direction, i would have been expecting Cthulhu any time.

Thanks for sharing. Have you had them for long? Any breeding success?

from November until April in a 100x50x30 tank in the basement with stoneplates and branches, the rest of the year they are outside and its open for rain. Food: most earthworm, nightcrawler, frozen or fresh oktobus cutted in smal strip, no waterpump outside,

Strange... You should try contact Jean Rafaelli and Arnaud Jamin. They both breed these in the past. Arnaud told me he actually wasn't expecting to breed them as he only had the animals for a pair of weeks offered by Jean but he did, 2 nice egg sacs 40 eggs each.
Cheers and thanks for letting know Peter.
