Default Italian Fire Salamander

So this is one of my Salamandra s. gigliolii. This male was sitting on its log like this when I walked in. I'm really hoping that this group produces larvae in the next couple of months. To my knowledge, there might be just 1 person reproducing these in the USA right now.

Beautiful! I didn't realize these were in the US at all. It would definitely be great to produce a breeding population, although with such a small existing population there are likely to be genetic problems eventually.
