Does anyone keep red salamanders? Right now i'm just gathering information. I know Glade Herp had them in stock for a while. I've read a lot of conflicting care requirements. Any info would be helpful.
Just wondering,
Alex

Hi Alex, there are several people who have kept red salamanders here, including myself. I'm not keeping any at the moment...

I kept mine (2 P. r. ruber and 1 P. r. schencki) totally aquatic, as they did not seem to use land areas. Temps were in the lows 60s F. They readily fed on chopped nightcrawlers and waxworms. Anything more specific than this you'd like to know?

Hi Alex,
I kept them for a number of years at work and kept them in everything from deep water tanks to stream systems to shoe boxes with paper towels. I fed them mainly crickets though. The temp range I kept them at ranged between @55 F to 72 F.
