Rep: Christophe is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Ambystoma talpoideum

Hi, I squired a pair of Ambystoma talpoideum from a reptile show recently. They are doing great, eating crickets, earthworms, and other insects. They are a definite pair as they are so obviously sexually dimorphic with the males visual organs present. I live in CT and would like to build an outdoor enclosure with the impossible hope that they would breed eventually, I know, a dream, but I'd like to try anyway. Any advice on the enclosure or this species would be appreciated... I don't think they hibernate since they are more of a Southeastern species but not sure of that either...thanks
