The last week of October I went to the Philly Zoo. They have their Ambystoma andersoni on display. The animals look great. I would turn the water flow down a little. The now have Ambystoma andersoni, Pleurodeles waltl, and Pipa parva on display that they received from me.

Re: Ambystoma andersoni at teh Philly Zoo

NICE, Mike. :cool: It's been a while since I hit up the zoo. Are those Spanish Ribbed Newts adults? I would love to see fully mature, full-sized specimens.

Every time I see a picture of your Andersonis I resist the urge to buy a few.

Very nice.

The ribbed newts at the Philly zoo are large adults. They've had them for years. The Ambystoma andersoni are young adults that will be ready to breed in the spring. They have some nice amphibians but not nearly like they did when Kevin Wright was in charge of the reptile house.

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
