I have had them down to around 8C in the winter with no problems. Mine have produced eggs, but no offspring yet due to a lack of adult males previously. Hopefully better luck this year!

I've had adult specimens to live over 6 yrs. in optimal conditions. You can have multiple salamanders in an enclosure, but I tend to keep adult males away from each other, for thy can get aggressive at times.

I have had juvenile females raised together periodically turn on each other and do major damage, like bite limbs off and chunks of flesh out of body and tail. Once you pair them up do not separate or introduce any others to the pair. Russ (rust) is the real expert on these, I imagine their longevity is closer to 20 years+.

Taherman is right. Russ Cormack (rust) is a true expert on Aneides. He's also willing to share his knowledge.
