Yeah it's was gutting, I had them developing for over two months they were beginning to look like larvae before I went away. I guessed that they would hatch at around the end of my two week trip. According to my cover staff they had started to move a little. I was feeding the adults almost three times a week and they where getting to the stage where they didn't want the fish.

I am gutted.

My condolences to you for the end result being so gutting, but I'm still amazed. She looks like my mudpuppy, except he's male. Really cool animals.

During this time, I had a long awaited field trip to China to survey Chinese Giant salamanders. During my time away the eggs were eaten I think because they were not fed enough, I'm gutted. There had obviously been some scraping as there was some skin damage.

But hey there is always next year, everything has been documented so I will repeat it next year so fingers crossed for then.

Hopefully my next trip to china will not clash with them laying again.

Kind regards
Jay
Where have you visited for the survey in China? There are huge amount of Chinese giant salamander culturists in my hometown. I have about 500 salamanders in my two breeding fields, 12 salamanders are 8/9 years old, and three females just laid numerous eggs one week ago.
