here is the link for the photo-very pretty-but im guessing its about as hard to get as the majority of bolitoglossas out there...http://www.globalherp.com/a21b0200.jpg
this site currently has no amphibs available anyways...
are there any bolitoglossas known to be hardy captives?

Hi Paris,
if you get them established they are tend to be hardy (at least the two species I worked with). Getting them established is the problem.

Wow, that's a beautiful salamander. The first thing that came to mind was Red splash-backed D. galactonotus. Who wants to go to Guatemala with me to look for some? j/k

It would be a pipe-dream to keep lincolni and red galactonotus in the same set-up, wounldn't it? I could just imagine it now...


(not that it should actually be done.)

Just to follow up, I found another picture of B. lincolni. It can be seen here: http://www.uta.edu/biology/campbell/guatemala/images/Bolitoglossa_lincolni.JPG
Unfortunately it's listed as Near Threatened due to a small range of habitat (a few places in Guatemala and one in Mexico), so we'll probably never see this species in captivity. If it were introduced into the captive market, it would likely need plenty of plant life (bromeliads, philodendrons) and high humidity in order to survive.

    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

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
