Default Working with P. glutinosus

I found two P. glutinosus last night on a trail at my college campus near northern Atlanta, Georgia. It was in the low 70's and humid so I looked around and found two adults. I believe they are females but am not positive.

I know quite a few peopler are starting to work with them and I wanted to know if you have any advice on care and breeding. Right now I have them in a tight sweater box with a few small holes drilled in the lid, with slightly damp paper towels as substrate and for hides. I plan on eventually setting them up in a 20 gallon after I acquire some more.

Also while handling one, I found how prehensile their tails are. I snapped a few pictures with my phone.

I would keep them as a kid, but never long term. Their care would be similar to other wooland Plethodon.

Plethodon are great! By all means, I encourage Plethodon keepers! I've found that many eastern Plethodon species have "prehensile" tails. Not so much for the western sp., though.
