Default Pseudoeurycea galeanae breeding

Does anyone have experience in breeding, hatching and raising the young of Pseudoeurycea. There really isn't much out there. I got one to lay eggs and I'm at the "now what" point.

The first clutch of eggs are developing nicely. And quite the surprise...a second salamander laid a clutch of eggs too!

Everyone loves pictures so here they are.

Click the image to open in full size.

This is the one that just laid the eggs. The eggs are probably a day old.

This is the first clutch of eggs. If you look closely you can some development. I think the eggs are about a month along.

Just another little update. The little salamanders have started to hatch!! I've seen 4 so far from the first clutch (April 14). I'll get some pictures in the next couple of days and post them soon.

Wow that's great, what P. is it? cephalica?
For how long do you have these animals? To bad there is nothing much about them on the internet, the only thing I keep hearing is that they're hard to maintain just like the Bolitoglossa's...

Can you elaborate on the housing, diet, and the over-all conditions you put the animals through to get them breeding?
As you said, information is VERY scarce, your experience will help others.

Default Re: Pseudoeurycea breeding

here are the updated pictures.

First off, here is an egg from the second clutch. As you can see, the larvae is developing nicely inside the egg.

Click the image to open in full size.

This next one is one of the babies (Counted 12 so far from the first clutch) on the mother. The adult is maybe 4 inches long, so these babies are TINY!

Click the image to open in full size.

Here is another hatchling next to a group of eggs.

Click the image to open in full size.

And just for a size comparison, this is one of them on my pinkie nail! Like I said TINY!

Click the image to open in full size.

As for husbandry...these guys are kept cool. Temps never go above 75F. The enclosure is a 10g aquarium. There is an undergravel filter (from a fish tank) with the air towers. On top of that is 3 inches of aquarium gravel, then about 4 inches of cypress mulch mixed with coconut husk mulch. That is topped off with a layer of cork bark covered in live Sphagnum moss. The salamander usually hang out under the cork bark, but occasionally will be between the moss and the bark. All of this is misted daily with Reverse Osmosis water, usually in the morning. The bottom of the tank has a drain so any excess water just fall out of the tank. The adults are fed pinhead or 1/4 inch crickets weekly. The babies are being offered springtails and fruitflies.

Very very cool. Don't hesitate to post more pics! Your set-up makes me question just what the heck I was trying with some Bogies I had. Hopefully I'll get another shot at it some day.
