I just started keeping two since I caught them. They're very squirmy but I'm hoping they'll calm down after some time. I put leaf litter, some bark, and various hiding places for them. I'm not entirely sure what I can feed them though as a main staple though.
I presently have several plethodon salamanders and have kept many other species over the years. Besides my Dicamptodon, Sirens, Amphiuma & Necturus (actual waterdogs, N. beyeri)), I am currently taking care of Pseudotriton, Eurycea, Hemidactylum, Batrachoseps and a P. metcalfi. In the past I have had P.larselli, P. glutinosus, P. dunni, as well as Aneides ferreus. They are all fascinating animals.
Due for some activity in the plethodontid forum, so I will update with some of the past couple of years' successes. (*= have bred successfully and produced offspring, x=eggs, but no offspring). Some of these are protected species that were collected with required permits and part of a zoo collection.
