Default Neotenic Caudata.

Hi I am really interested in seeing people's Paedomorphic caudata. It really does fascinate me! I noticed there was a thread in the Cynops speices section about paedomorphic C. ensicauda.

So if you have any photo's of any of your species that didn't undergo metamorphis or that took ages too.

Thanks!

This was a thread about a T. karelinii that did not fully lose its gills for over a year:
Giant T. karelinii larva
This animal is still living with a friend of mine locally, but I haven't checked to see if it ever completely lost the gill stubs.

That's really cool! I wonder if it's like having an axolotl...
