I hate you so much it burns in my chest...you have the job i always dreamed of but i´ll never have.
Deep resentment and jealousy aside, that was a lovely video if rather depressing, hehe. Thank you for sharing, thank you for your efforts and..
...so sorry you didn´t get to see any in the wild.
Thank you Jay for sharing the video. I’ve seen a few large captive specimens in parks in western Hunan Province. On my next visit to Hunan, I hope to visit a breeding farm owned by someone my wife met during her last visit.
Thanks for the post! Great video!
It's such a shame, such a shame for me as a Chinese herpetology student to see this video, specially the part where it shows tons of the salamanders in the farm but not even one in the field... The government never get serious in protecting the species: the top governors only knew see the number that are alive, but never care whether it's wild or captive population, which is a very serious problem in Chinese wildlife conservation. Same tragedy happened for Chinese alligator and Red-river giant soft-shell turtle.
Sincerely hope this kinda international coorperation could wave the CCP up and help save the giant!
That was amazing! typing the Chinese giant salamander into google it looks big .... then seeing that video it looks twice the size! they are really cool! ... Hope they don't go to the full extent of extinction ... However I don't understand how some of the Chinese population can care about them but eat them too? :S in my opinion I think il stick to chicken.
Try various foods to mimic a natural diet. If your worms are dead, try living things for sure. My newts prefer live food almost exclusively. My eastern newts eat snails, black worms, baby brine and others. They are like picky children. Maybe blood worms are their broccoli lol
Hey there guys! My tank is cycled but I'm still battling ammonia spikes just when I get it down to zero. I keep the tank clean and do water changes when needed to lower it. Ammonia is about .25-.5 right now, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate ppm. Not sure why two months in now it's still fluctuating?
@axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.
Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?
