Hi, my name is Liz, and this week I became the caretaker for a Tiger Salamander. I have no experience with keeping such an animal. I have fostered Poison Dart Frog tadpoles; wild ones bring their tadpoles to my outside fish tanks, and I have brought some to my classroom to let the kids watch them develop, then released the young adults to the wild again. All my other pets are mammals. So far, Sal seems happy. I gave him a deep bed of Reptisoil and he burrowed right in. I am grateful to be part of this forum; I know I am going to need advice!
