I would certainly have agreed with your comments, had I not have seen for myself that they do live aquatically in the high altitude Cinco Lagunas. I have found adults, by lifting large submerged stones in the lakes, whereupon the salamanders would swim for cover under another boulder. The immediate habitat is very barren, with stones and boulders in and surrounding the water, surrounded by grass meadows. I could not find any salamanders on 'terra firma'.
What are your observations Ruben?
Of course, Salamandra s. almanzoris doesn't have a "newt behavior". This is a necessary correction.
Well, the peculiarity that I have seen in Cinco Lagunas and other glacial ponds still higher ( 2.300 m. ) is that adults were with all his body in the water and the head out breathing. I didn't see salamanders in the deep points of these ponds, but the borders were full of salamanders at night.
Thorn describe this behavior like a "adaptée à une vie aquatique" , maybe exaggerated , but these are the only salamanders that I have seen in the water out of the spawn moment.
This behavior was observed in other almanzoris popolations, like those of Guadarrama lakes, but less obvious
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
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)
