Rep: JimO is an unknown quantity at this point
Default New Dart Frogger

Hello,

I mostly keep dart frogs, but have always wanted to try salamanders. They are one of my favorite groups of animals. I've lived most of my life in Florida and have always collected reptiles and amphibians, but I have never once found a salamander in Northeast Florida where I live, which I find odd. I've seen several types in the Blue Ridge mountains on vacation, but never down here.

Anyway, it's good to have found this site.

Welcome to the forum!
I live in the Melbourne area, and I too have never seen a newt or salamander (well, with the exception of an amphiuma) in Fl. I go to college in NW Ga however, and we're LOADED up there.

That's so cool that you keep Dart Frogs!
I have some questions for you. If I recall, their toxicity comes mostly from their diet. If you feed them appropriately, can they be touched and held safely? Are they hard to keep?

Welcome to the forum!

Hannah, in captivity all dendrobatids are completely harmless. Without the specific chemicals they get from ants and other invertebrates in their natural habitat, they canŽt produce any toxin.
Some species are considered easy (after their fashion) to keep. I know of a few people who have started in the hobby with Epipedobates tricolor or Dendrobates auratus.
Gorgeous animals the lot of them...but i dread the day that iŽll allow myself to get one :S

Greetings. I'm in Florida too. Never seen a Newt or Salamander. I've only seen 2 crayfish. 1 bear (dead), 1 bobcat (dead) 1 Indigo Snake (not dead).
I used to keep darts too. They are great animals. My wife made me go bug less when we moved. So no more insect eating critters.
