This is a discussion on Species Help within the Plethodontids and Lungless Salamanders (Bolitoglossa, Eurycea, Plethodon, etc.) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; Does anyone have any experience with Plethodon elongatus, Aneides ferreus or Battrachoseps attenuatus? Thanks, George...

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.

Sorry for not making myself clearer. I was just wondering whether they make good captives, and what sort of set-up and diet you gave them. Do you have any pictures of their tanks?
Thanks, George.

I keep Batrachoseps. They are pretty straight forward. Make sure you keep the enclosure moist. They are a nice beginner species. I keep 2 of them. They can be pretty fast and feisty, and are escape artists so be prepared. I don't have exact experience with Aneides ferreus (Clouded Salamander) but I keep Aneides lugubris (Arboreal Salamander), I imagine they are similar. For more care info, type in "Aneides care" or "Batrachoseps care" and some things will pop up.

I was talking about Batrachoseps attenuatus (CA slender salamander) If you want me to direct you to a caresheet regarding them please ask. You can only find them in CA.


Thanks for asking,
Aneides
