Plethodontids and Lungless Salamanders (Bolitoglossa, Eurycea, Plethodon, etc.) The largest, and one of the most diverse groups of salamanders, these salamanders have all evolved to breathe solely through their skin and are found almost exclusively in North America.

Though not quite as exciting as the first time, the second always makes me more confident that it wasn't just a random event. Looks like we're doing something right!

FYI, she started laying with daytime air temp of 13C, nighttime 7C, and water temp of 12C. Photoperiod matches our local seasonal variation.

That's fantastic Tim! Do you have any photos of the setup you guys have for Eurycea lucifuga?
