Our experiment in group writing was very successful and after 2.5 years has culminated in the development of the Amphibian Glossary now available in the FAQ section of Caudata Culture.

See: Caudata Culture Amphibian Glossary

The glossary defines more than 150 terms that are commonly used in relation to amphibians in general and caudates in specific and should prove to be a useful resource especially for those new to the caudate arena. This is a ‘living document’ where new words and definitions will be added as they are posted here in the forum glossary project thread.

I would like to extend a BIG thank you to all the members of the Caudata.org Forum who participated in contributing to this glossary and without whose input this 'community' document would not have been possible - you are identified in the glossary as participants. Special thanks also go to the Caudata Culture Editorial Committee for their countless hours of work with this project.

I give special gratitude to Jan, who got this project restarted after it seemed to die, and saw it through to completion. Thank you!

The glossary is taking on a new look! Jennewt has been adding several thumbnail photos to glossary definitions. As is said....a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks Jennewt!

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
