Traded away several of my H.nebulosus morphs and received these 3 larvae in return http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/biggrin.gif which I was told were "rescued" from near a construction site. Seems their former habitat had all but disappeared when last checked http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/sad.gif

Exiting shots of a rare species Tim...I would be interested to follow the further development of the animals as they grow and become adult.

One of the two larvae has a broad tail with a nick in it (the one pictured directly above), while the other's tail is sharper:

Don't ask about the first one pictured way at the top of this thread. As I recently confessed to Henk, it morphed early and apparently drowned http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/sad.gif I'm still kicking myself for not having prepared more than an artificial island. So I'm left with these two. Here's a frontal view of "Sharpie":

They're both morphing now. I've been watching them very carefully and taking precautions to prevent another accident. Interesting to see how dark they've become http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/love.gif :
