You're too kind, juraj. It's you that's the photographer, I just get lucky with the camera from time to time! :)

Beautiful! Well done Juraj.
I think this would be the appropriate section because we aren't really sharing our field herping experiences, more just posted our findings pictures. And in some cases the animals are captive so that wouldn't fit field herping section :)

More photos!

Not only beautiful shots, but beautiful animals! That's one of the problems I have, there aren't very many colorful or particularly beautiful amphibians around me ( well, I think they are beautiful, but I am also newt crazed :rolleyes: ).

The species are:
Ambystoma opacum (marbled)
Desmognathus brimleyorum (quachita dusky)
And I think Plethodon albagula (western slimy).
These are a few field herping pics.

Nice photo Bette!

Out of curiosity, did anyone actually make a calendar out of these photos? I haven't yet, but maybe when I get the cash together I will.

But I ended up making a calendar from my Cairngorms photos.

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

    Unlike
  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
