Herping for P. cinereus and Eurycea bislineata

This is a discussion on Herping for P. cinereus and Eurycea bislineata within the Plethodontids and Lungless Salamanders (Bolitoglossa, Eurycea, Plethodon, etc.) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; Though they are a little more formidable, I have seen Desmognathus ocrophaeus on tall (1.5+) tree stumps....

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 they are a little more formidable, I have seen Desmognathus ocrophaeus on tall (1.5+) tree stumps.

She could have been foraging or maybe she was just investigating the flowing water source and when it stopped turned back down the tree. This was just the first time I had seen any Eurycea bislineata up on a side of tree let alone five of them. I knew something was was going on. Once I saw her developing eggs through her skin I started to think courtship.

It may be a little uncouth to write about it here, but I think we're all big enough to handle it. And it spawns interesting conversation.

Coastal, have you ever tried feeding any other types of sals to your snakes? I wonder if they'd eat axolotls. You could have an unending supply!
How does one join this "happy bunny club", just joshing you but this definitely is an interesting thread
