Looking through my newly aquired "Amphibians in Captivity" book I noticed a picture labled as an Aneides ferrus specimen displaying "unusual green tints". It appears to me to be an Aneides aeneus and even has very squared toes like the A. aeneus I keep. Can anyone verify if this is actually a A. ferrus.
Not that it really matters,it still is a great book but I was just wondering.

There are a few inaccuracies in Marc's book, which is to be expected in a text attempting to cover so much. I don't own the book personally, and don't remember if his Aneides photos were improperly captioned, but it's a common mistake and wouldn't surprise me.
