Here's a shot of a CB longtoed from 2003. Ready for reproduction in the coming year or maybe the year there after...

No Russ, they are nominate subspecies, originating from Eugene , Oregon.
Have tried to get others , but so far without much luck...

Don't have any scientific explanation at had but I think it is easier telling that they are Ambystoma macrodactylum macrodactylum and not another subspecies.

I had some from near Eugene a few years ago, but they were much more green (forest green). Odd thing I noticed was the small size they retained as adults compared to specimens I had maintained from CA, ID and MT. As a matter of fact, they only reached a total of about 4 inches compared to 7 or 8 from other locales.

Hai Russ, now you surprise me ... 7 to 8 inch for longtoeds ?? Mine are indeed in the range of 4 to 4,5 inch and that's alos the size I found them in when visitng the area. An no, I didn't bring them home from that trip.. I had the animals prior to the trip... in fact I did part of the trip to see thair habitat so that could adjust my tanks accordingly, which owrked out well.
In 2004 I again bred them, which was the 7th time on a row and I hope to continue doing so.
I ever somebody would find eggs of the other longtoeds I would be interested in trying to rear them up here. I'm not interested in getting wildcaught animals, but some eggsclumps on some waterweeds might just work well.

No bull. The biggest I've seen was from just outside the front gate to Lassen NP in northern CA, a full 8 inches (pictured). But over 6 seems to be not uncommon in the Rockies.

Well the colors on this species certainly seems to be quite different from the ones I have ...

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!

    Hi all I'm new here I'm just looking some advise on cycle witch is currently driving me insane . So we are week 8 I'm dosing daily with 4pp of amonia and for the last week has been dropping to zero witch I no is good. But my question is my nitrites are sitting at between 0.50 and 1.0 PM and nitrates are between 10 and 20 and neither of these seem to be dropping. I have done 2 40% water changes a few days ago and no change the only thing I can think of is I didnt use the seachem stability stuff which I have now ordered but surely that shouldn't have much difference this far into cycling
