Do Salamandra always have yellow eyelids? At least, the ones that aren't spot-less.

Good question, I know there are some tingitaná populations witch can have strong reduction of the yellow spots, As you can see on figure 10 : http://vipersgarden.at/PDF_files/PDF-1367-gb.pdf I allso have some animals from this location of my own but are still young. Black and black and white animals are allso common in this area.

From those pictures, and what you posted, it seems like that's the normal, unless the animal has abberant coloration.

Come to think of it, maybe S.s.gallaica is the only one i ever saw without yellow/red eyelids and even that, most of them do have it.

Beautiful animals indeed. Would love to see an update when they are adults!

hopefully they grow up to 30cm, when I get them they were very little nice Algiras - see them in my hand, it was 25. Mai 2011
5 month later 25. Oktober 2011 they grew to 12,5cm - wonderful looking salamander

Waw, they grow fast on you than Ummi. Yours are much rounder two. You know fast growing is not allways good right. You feed them allso calcium? But nice to see some brothaers and sisters. I know Jari has a nearly adult sister and proublebly brother of ours, looking verry nice ! :)

the carrots you see in the case are for the woodlice and house-cricket,
I feed earthworms for calcium and different maggots...Dinner is served...

That's a beautiful vivarium, Jeroen. How often do you clean the water dish?

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
