These are photos of the "Cole Springs Phenotype" of E. cirrigera. This form is much stockier than other 2-lined salamanders with a very stout, triangular head.

Wow! These are all completely new to me. Please, Nate...lead us not into temptation!! Click the image to open in full size.

Wonderful photos -- not just these but the others posted today too. Hope we can expect more pics of your menagerie in the days/weeks/months to come!

How aquatic are these?

Hi Tim, I do hope to add photos of courtship, eggs, larvae, etc. in the future Click the image to open in full size.

All of these small Eurycea (excluding lucifuga, longicauda, and guttolineata) will remain 100% aquatic in captivity if encouraged to do so and do not encounter any predator stimuli in the water.
