You are lucky to have all these amazing species available. I was prevented from getting to HenkWallays to collect some dunni by fluhttp://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/angry.gifWhat are those floating thingies in the tank?

Sorry, Chris, dunno the names of those floating plants (3 kinds there in that top photo). I have numerous floating plants in another (giant) tank that gets good light. But they've proliferated to an extent that they're now blocking out light needed by the plants underneath them http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/angry.gif

This species, generally regarded as the most attractive of the Japanese hynobiids, is from Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan's 4 main islands. It inhabits the following area:

the plants in the photo are:
-Lemna minor (or Lemna sp.)...ten called "duckweed" (it's the smallest one on the pic)

-Salvinia (S.natans or S.auriculata...I don't know)...the plant on the left top of the first pic)

I don't know what species is the third plant...maybe Trapa or another Salvinia...

So where are the most recent addition to your collection Tim? The ones you were talking about the other day?http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/biggrin.gif

Additions? Well, that's one of them, the stejnegeri pictured right above with some chunks missing from its tail.

I had my first morph today, which confirms to me that they take to land before their gills have completely disappeared.

Here it is today just prior to leaving the water:

And taking to land for the first time:

Looking good, although H. kimurae is actually the most beautiful Hynobius. http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/bowl.gif}
