Just came home after a weeks vacation on Sicily, and was afraid that a week without much food and water change either would make them kill each other or force them to the land face.
I was very happy to see, that even they were much thinner, they were all looking good and healthy. I noticed that they all had some reduced gills, but looking closer, I saw that it was because of biting not going into metamorphosis.
After a huge waterchange, I started feeding them........and continued feeding them..........and had to get more food. They were so hungry that they ate 200g beefheart, 500g earthworms and some hundred coackroaches in one meal.
There are precisely 100 larvae left and the biggest now 17 cm.

Yesterday I saw that one of the larvae has started to reduce the gills. They will be 4 months old in a week. Strangely enough it is not one of my biggest larvae. It is only 15 cm, and I recon my largest are about 18 cm now.
The water and weather here is cold almost Atum, so they don`t eat and grow as much as before.

The last of the larvae are now changing to the land fase, and adult colorations are beginning to show on the salamanders.

This year I thought the tigrinum wouldn`t breed since Spring came early, and even the adults were placed in the breeding tanks, they waited and waited.
Finally they laid eggs, and the first larvae hatched yesterday. Actually it is not late. It is 2 weeks earlier than last year.
I won`t raise a lot. Just a few for the shows. I have enough to feed on :happy:

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
