Here's a video of some P.waltl that are excited at the thought of being fed. http://www.ultimatelunchbox.com/pleuros.wmv
You should see the mayhem that erupts once the food goes in http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/biggrin.gif!
Sorry about the poor quality - it was filmed on an old digital camera.

Quite an active bunch! I liked the sound of water in the background, but next time maybe you should play the themesong from Jawshttp://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/talker.gif

Next time post the video of them eating if you can. That would be real exciting!http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/happy.gif

Great video Mark! Do you have a problem with them getting over excited and start snapping at each other? Mine would get impatient and start to bite each others legs, tails and even faces. I would then have to remove individuals and fed them one at a time to prevent injuries during feedings.

Yes, Danny I do have that problem occasionally. I normally let them sort it out themselves. I do get the odd newt that adopts the crocodile approach to flesh removal and starts spinning in a death roll. I normally intervene at that point http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/uhoh.gif.

I'll remember the Jaws theme tune for the feeding frenzy vid Jen http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/happy.gif.
