  • FragileCorpse:
    Do you guys think I could put some water ina clear tote and put my salamande rin to swim around? For enrichment and fun kinda deal? Do you think he would even like that? or would he sketch cuz its just water and the bottom is like 2 feet down kinda deal? Can they swim well? I dont want to drop him in and scare him unless I know for certainnheh can swim.I havent googled it yet. I know they go into vernal pools, but a vernal pool is a lot different than 2 to 3 feet of water straight down.

  • FragileCorpse:
    Google says " Free-living adults rarely enter water other than for breeding, but a shallow, easily-exited water bowl will be utilized by captives. " is that true? So he would HATE dropping him in some nice deep water to swim around for a little bit?" Hes got a nice big tank to wander around in but I find he constantly wants to just chill under his big hidey rock, and peek out every once in a while Lol

    @FragileCorpse, One of my tigers likes to be underwater most of the day hiding out under rocks then comes up for air every few minutes.

    My water is about 6" deep and the Tiger is about 8" long so it can easily prop itself up on corners of the tank.

    they get fat after eating their worm pieces and it takes a long time to look as thin as they do in wild life pictures. there are no other prey items available around here.

  • FragileCorpse:
    So, how often do I have to change the soil in my yellow spotteds terrarium? The soil looks fine, he stays under his rock all the time, so should I maybe only change put the soil from udner the rock? Or do I change it all out cuz its all stayed moist and I dont wnat it it mold kinda deal? Its been around 40 days with the same soil. It looks and smells completely fine though. I dont know what salamander poop even looks like, but Im not even finding any. I put pill bugs in his cage for him and they disappear, theyre not burrowing, so he MUST be eating them. What am I looking out for when the soil needs to be changed? Clearly the people whos aid they were coming to seize my salamander have forgotten and arent coming back.
