I'm looking forward to lots of caecilian surprises in the future - after the skin-feeding larvae came to light, nothing seems impossible! Best, Frank

They are amazing, aren't they? Here's a paper on their conservation...not much available on the subject
Another I wrote awhile back on keeping T. natans, the pet trade "rubber eel"

Enjoy, Frank

They totally are! In fact, I like them MORE than salamanders. That's right! I went there!

Thanks for the articles! Here is an interesting article on the rediscovery of Atretochoana: http://www.museu-goeldi.br/editora/b...oogmoed%29.pdf
