This was a post from a different forum but has salamander and newt representatives throughout. I thought the community may enjoy it.

I have been away for a while, looking forward to getting reacquainted.

Let me know if these pics are not showing up. You may need to be a member to view the actual pics. If so, I will work on getting them posted directly to this forum. I was hoping to bypass the time it would take to post them all again.

Beautiful I. a apuanus, they are very underrated these days, but I love 'em. There's all kinds of pets in our house, but its the alpine newts that visitors always comment on.

Very cool! I'm curious do you have a favorite?

To be honest, no, each species has a unique appeal to me in their own way. Probably a bit of a boring answer, but it's the truth... If anything, I'd say the N. viridescens as I grew up catching them in PA. Thank you for your interest ;)

Are they Hynobius?

No, I grew fascinated by the Ambystoma Complex(A. texanum, A. laterale, A. jeffersonianum, A. platineum, and A. tremblayi). The species Pictured is A. texanum. It was a breeding attempt that was not successful, however it was very interesting to observe them in an aquatic breeding situation. They had access to a large land section at all times with a very gradual egress. Thank you for the interest! I have many photos of intergrades if you are interested in seeing them...

    I've advertised my CB alpine newts for sale UK but no offers so far. I'm looking for a carer/enthusiast so I put a price to deter people who might not be serious about the responsibilities of the undertaking but how do I find a genuine enthusiast who will take over care? I'm not looking for money, just a good home for the newts.

    Hey guys, its way too hot where I live right now. Temperatures 40 degree celcius outside, making it like 30 degrees inside. Ive got ice packs on my yellow spotted salamanders hidey rock, he acts like he hates it though. Am I keeping him too cold? I think my temp gauge might be messed up, or at least in the wrong spot. I put the tank temp gauge in the top left corner of his large tank, where it says its 80 degrees fahrenheit, which I am aware is too hot, which is what makes me put the ice packs on his rock at the bottom of the cage, but the bottom of his cage feels a lot cooler tha 80 degrees. Should I move my temp gauge down to the bottom corner where he hangs out the most? Should I get a soil temperature probe so I can tell what temperature the soil that hes laying on is?

  • FragileCorpse:
    Because his soil is certainly not 80 degrees fahrenheit, and I dont want to freeze the poor bugger with ice packs if he really doesnt need them. Hes been doing fine, but Im just so stressed because I cant get ANy information on how to handle this little guy. Theyre illegal to keep without a permit, but this one would not have survived without my intervention. So I cant call and ask anyone for help. If theres a betetr site than this one, I sure havent found it. But I never get any replies here. We are all just asking questions and getting none answered basically. Its really frustrating as I just want to help this little dude be happy and healthy. All I can get him to eat is potato bugs as well. I cant find anything else that he will eat. Is that even okay? :/ hes been eating strictly those since may first.

    The ONLY reason I spent 500 dollars on this thing was to keep him alive. thats IT. He was completely dry with cracked skin and couldnt walk and I nursed him back to health. Now I should just throw him outside on the hard baked ground where I found him? in my driveway? Really dude?

    I am very sure he was just trying to pass by, because he certainly cant dig ANYWHERE in the soil ANYWHERE near where I live.
