I wanted to add, these salamanders did not live outside. They did not live in a "cold basement",at least not one that went below 14 degrees C (55F) ever. I put them in my garage on Saturday so they could hear and see the storms that rolled through this week (it has windows and a lot of space for breeding).

That's great news. Congratulations! We had some "bad" weather in The Netherlands last couple of days, but I haven't seen any mating. While they were aquatic the first weeks, they now suddenly cling to the floating debris to raise themselves out of the water. I just wait a couple of days, before I put them back on land again.

You didn't fridge these guys? Is that a blow-up kids' pool? Anyway that is so amazingly cool.

I did fridge them. Yes, it's a blow up pool.

I didn't fridge all of them though, so I'm testing if that's actually necessary for that race, as I've seen similar behaviour in previous years in response to storms, but they didn't have a breeding pool.

Great work John!!!!!!!!!!! Yahoo! I'll be trying with my mavortium, possibly this time next year using the Ed method.

I would be very interested in raising some larvae if you are willing to part with any. I've raised many tiger larvae.

    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
