Hi!

Here you have some pictures from my two less than a year age Salamandra salamandra salamandra. They are my firsts urodeleans and I think that they are very well. The diet consists basically in earthworms. I´ve some difficults to obtain other food but this is the best. They are growing more faster than I was thinking.
Without doubt, an amazing animals.











Eating a earthworm



And the last, the terrarium. Now is a few small because they are small too, but with the time both will grow.



I hope you like it.

S.salamandra is the king of caudates xD
Very nice tank, too, although i would perhaps add some stacked bark for additional hiding areas, or maybe more leaf-litter (just to make sure they have plenty of hiding options, since they can be mildly territorial).

Muy majas las salamandras ;)

Lovely pictures. I am presently setting up a tank for some new additions , so your post has helped me a lot. What kind of lid do you use?

OK. I´m very glad that you like them.

AZHAEL, you have reson, some adicional hiding areas maybe would necessary. In my next visit to the forest for "hunt" eartworms I´ll give to home some pieces of bark.

BELLABELOO about the kind of lid that I use, well this terrarium in fact is for corn snakes. Above it have a metalic net with small holes. The door is at the front, and is a single glass that you can to take away to pulling down it. The ilumination is above the metallic net. I thing that is a Exoterra terrarium, but I´m not sure. I like very much this terrarium, is perfect for my "babes".

I´m very happy that you like it.

    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.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    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.

    Hey, does anyone know if hot glue is fine to glue rocks together?

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings
