oh okay thanks, it was on a blog about axolotl, and i was confused because it looks like it had hind legs and i thought maybe it was an amphibian that i hadn't heard of.

Lol! Why on earth would you post a question about marine fish on a newt and salamander forum? Let alone in the advanced topic section! Surely there's a website somewhere for beginners Ellasmobranchii questions! :lol:

Yes, I can see it now, post #6 must have been waiting to be approved because it wasn't there when I commented. I know I shouldn't be messing about in this bit of the forum, so sorry ticonic! It just struck me funny that it was in the advanced section.

I don't think it's photoshopped. The pelvic fins of stingrays are mostly or completely hidden under the rear edge of the pectoral fins [the "rays"]. In males especially, they're modified to resemble legs and are known as claspers, used to grasp the female for internal fertilization. I don't see anything in that picture which doesn't look like normal ray anatomy.

I've been keeping/breeding stingrays for about 7 years and not only does this look like a normal ray, it looks like a very young pup. I don't know what species of ray, however, other than marine (versus the 3 freshwater species I keep).

    Is it fine to feed adult marbled newts once every 10-15 days?

    they get fat after eating their worm pieces and it takes a long time to look as thin as they do in wild life pictures. there are no other prey items available around here.

    So, how often do I have to change the soil in my yellow spotteds terrarium? The soil looks fine, he stays under his rock all the time, so should I maybe only change put the soil from udner the rock? Or do I change it all out cuz its all stayed moist and I dont wnat it it mold kinda deal? Its been around 40 days with the same soil. It looks and smells completely fine though. I dont know what salamander poop even looks like, but Im not even finding any. I put pill bugs in his cage for him and they disappear, theyre not burrowing, so he MUST be eating them. What am I looking out for when the soil needs to be changed? Clearly the people whos aid they were coming to seize my salamander have forgotten and arent coming back.
