Hi all, I'm an italian biologist and I would like to receive an opinion about the health status of this salamander breeded by someone (not me of course) who refers to himself as an amphibian specialist. Do you think that this salamander reflects the standard condition of his species?
Your opinion is very important in order to decide if I should take action against this man.

Thank you

I have seen animals like that in the past but they never lived for a long time after they were so skinny like that.

Hello, yes it is a very skinny animal, but if the cause of its
thinness is only the lack of food then it can recover weight with
great number of earthwoms and slugs, on the other hand if the cause are
parasites, then it is damned:(, thanks

    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
