Default Plethodon cinereus

Hi !

I'd like to share some photos of my Plethodon cinereus tank.

There is a couple, CB in France, in a 80 x 30 x 30 tank.
The last photo is a good illustration of the importance of a good lid.
I built the lid to be escape-proof so that even fruit flies cannot escape.

I see these wild all the time, but I've never seen them captive before. Lovely setup! I guess they're probably more popular where they aren't common.

I know people keeping them in captivity in the US. They get super tame, believe it or not.

Right, John,

A friend of mine thought I would rarely see them but, in fact, with a lot of hide places, they are not especially shy and I can see at least one (out of two) almost every evening.

This automn, I saw them breeding three times.
