My name is Erik Leitner and this is my first post. I am an elementary science teacher and am very impressed with the knowledge base I have seen as I have read through the forums.

I have recently obtained a mudpuppy through Underground Reptiles in Deerfield Beach, Florida. They have an excellent reputation and have never done me wrong in the past.

Let me also say that I am aware of the differences between Tiger Salamanders and Mudpuppies and know that is not the case here.

My concern is that the Mudpuppy has not eaten in two weeks. I have tried many foods, but find the only one he has any interest in are Canadian Nightcrawlers. He will take them in but spit them up. He does not look too skinny, nor are his gills in poor shape. What do you suggest to help improve his appetite?

Thanks in advance,

Erik Leitner
