Where are all the plethodontid keepers?

This is a discussion on Where are all the plethodontid keepers? within the Plethodontids and Lungless Salamanders (Bolitoglossa, Eurycea, Plethodon, etc.) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; I had to give mine up because I live in Tennessee now, and we can not keep any native species....

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.

I just started keeping two since I caught them. They're very squirmy but I'm hoping they'll calm down after some time. I put leaf litter, some bark, and various hiding places for them. I'm not entirely sure what I can feed them though as a main staple though.

I presently have several plethodon salamanders and have kept many other species over the years. Besides my Dicamptodon, Sirens, Amphiuma & Necturus (actual waterdogs, N. beyeri)), I am currently taking care of Pseudotriton, Eurycea, Hemidactylum, Batrachoseps and a P. metcalfi. In the past I have had P. larselli, P. glutinosus, P. dunni, as well as Aneides ferreus. They are all fascinating animals.

I have in the past kept Plethodon cinereus and Desmognathus fuscus. The later for a very short while. I have kept Hemidactylium scutatum for the last 5 years. Plethodontids are the best!
