Well i have tons and tons of photo's.So i will start with todays finds.We are going out tonight thanks to the rainy weather.:cool:There are tons of vernal pools on my property and my bosses.So if anyone is in the area just let me know and i can show you some good spots providing you dont destroy the spots.
Well if its ok here is a run down on what we have found just in our area.
Ambystoma maculatum,Ambystoma opacum,Ambystoma laterale,Ambystoma jeffersonianum (and hybrids of the 2),Notophthalmus v.viridescens,Hemidactylium scutatum,Plethodon c.cinereus,and we are still trying to find some Desmognathus f.fuscus.
Well here are just a couple pics of the land in this spot.
Then are some pics of the A.maculatum eggs i found.They were in a dried up vernal pool,and partially ripped.So i stole it before anything ate them.And so far there are about 30 eggs that have hatched and about 30+ that are on there way.
And now some pics!



Where i found them and when i got them back to the house.I will update the pics tommorrow!

what is the legality of collecting eggs in the us? I am pretty sure I would be breaking the law if I did that in the uk. (That why I keep away from areas like that this time of year so as not to disturb the newts during breeding season)

I'm fairly sure that the U.K is rather different. It is true that species such as the Great crested newt are protected and it is illegal to collect the adults, juveniles, or eggs. In the U.S. however, depending on state laws, collecting species such as A.maculatum is perfectly legal.

A.maculatum is not protected here.Also it is legal to collect the eggs.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
