I went to a beautiful place here in *beeeeeeeeeep* and besides getting a real bad case of sun burn, i had a very happy day of herping hehe.
We visited two different spots, a large natural pool, and a bog.
In the pool we were able to see Hyla arborea, P.perezi, L.boscai, Natrix maura and Emys orbicularis.
In the bog and the nearby river we found P.perezi, Lacerta shcreiberi, Chalcides striatus and a non-herp but still cute little fella, a bat.
Well...here are some of the pics.

Great photos as usual, Rodrigo, thanks for sharing. That's a beautiful Hyla arborea. I have to ask - how did you catch the bat?

Thank you John.
We spotted several bats in the cracks under a bridge. So i held a bag up the crack, and my friend scared the poor thing with a twig. When it tried to fly away it went directly into the bag.

Hehe, smart. My father used to catch bats when he was fly fishing (I know, odd). They would go for the fly when he was casting because they too thought it was a fly in the air just as a fish thinks it's a fly on/in the water.

    @MadamePirateOwl Fridging is best left to life-or-death situations, and salt baths are unnecessarily harsh, stressful, and abrasive. I'd suggest doing tea baths instead (using caffeinated black tea, where the only ingredient is black tea).

    Hard to tell without a photo, but might be algae or fungus floating. Water changes will take care of that.

    The second image was how it looked the first time, it was mixed with some other poop like stuff. after that its been small and without the poopy stuff

    The second photo looks reminiscent of partially-digested worms, though I've never seen anything like that. Have you checked your parameters lately?

    For now I'd tub the axolotl and do daily 100% water changes until you're able to test your parameters

    I'd also recommend ordering a liquid test kit such as the API Freshwater Master Test Kit since strips are generally unreliable and inaccurate.
