I had to give mine up because I live in Tennessee now, and we can not keep any native species.

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.

I have in the past kept Plethodon cinereus and Desmognathus fuscus. The later for a very short while. I have kept Hemidactylium scutatum for the last 5 years. Plethodontids are the best!
