Hi!

I worked in the Vivarium of Chemnitz with this nice species. Since this moment I'm very interested in keeping them at home. But I could find only few information about this nice animal. Do you know anything about them? Have you ever kept this animal at home? Do you know a source, where I could get a couple of them?
Thank you for all of your answers!

Bye

René

I haven't kept them at home but I did have a small group for years at work. I got a couple of clutches from them but they were infertile.

Hi Ed!

Thank you for the answer! Do you know, if these animal are protected by CITES or anything else?

I'll go to the Vivarium and ask on of my former colleagues, from where they got this one Plethodon jordani. They keep it together with Eurycea lucifuga in one tank... Maybe they know a source, where i can get one of them.

But, if anyone else knows anything about these animal, please, write it down here. Thank you.

bye

René

They may be collected in some states and are rather common in the right habitat.

only problem is that you'd need to find a way of getting them over to Europe.

Hallo William!

Yes, the next problem is, how to get them over to me. So my hope was to find someone in Europe, who is keeping and maybe breeding these animals. But there seems to be nobody, who has got them at home. Maybe there will be a chance for me, maybe not today but in the next years, to get them.
I'm young. I've so many time to get these animals... So I will have a little bit more time to collect all information I can get about them.

Thank you for all your answers.

Bye

René
