Not pro! Just lucky. Lucky enough to have a chance to work with this species. I think Aneides lugubris is a very hardy salamander and will breed for anyone who provides the right elements.

What temps do you keep yours at? I've had eggs, but have been mostly infertile.

In winter they're kept at 40-55 degrees for about 3 months. And in warmer months 50-65 degrees. I have a friend who's gotten infertile eggs before and he can't figure it out either. Even though his housing is amazing similar to mine.

The babies hatched September 19th. They're doing great and still have remnants of yolk.

Congrats on your animals, haven't been active on the forums in a long time and I'm glad to see you've had success with them!

I have three lugubris, and was surprised to see two sets of tiny eyes staring out at me when I went to return an animal to the enclosure (I'd taken him out to show some kids when I was doing a program at work), and then found eight more with the parents (both adults were in the hide, if I remember right - I was a bit excited so it might have just been the mother). Definitely didn't do anything special, aside from the terrarium design - a flowerpot hide on its side, opening mostly covered in clayed-up wood, and a clay background with lots of tiny cracks - the little guys seemed to love hiding in the cracks as I raced to remove them from the parent tank, afraid they'd be eaten. Three weeks later, I found another little guy, so I was wondering, did you notice (or have any chance to notice) any potential cannibalism from the adults? He was out in the open, just a few inches from the adult I don't believe he's related to, and hadn't been eaten in that time - I was half tempted to leave him in there just to see how he'd do, but don't really want to risk it.

I think the risk is of parents eating the babies are very low. As long as your adults are well fed I think they're safe to be left with the parents for a while. But as precaution, removing the babies or the parents isn't a bad idea. Since the parents have done their job and no longer can do anything else for the babies, separation is a good idea.
