I've been owning a Necturus for about two years now. I bought it at a pet store in Lancaster,PA. Where did you get yours? It's an awesome salamander and a lot of fun to watch. Sorry I couldn't post any pictures.
Ah, the wilds of Canada - chasing aquatic salamanders at -32C/-25F.
And here's a report on yesterday's event ...

Mudpuppy Night in Oxford Mills.
Leaving Bishops Mills, 19:55, SKY: -14C, CLR,CLM
Ice free for 1 - 2 metres wide on downstream side of bridge, with complete ice cover for about 6 metres upstream. A u-shaped cluster of round ice pans crowded against the edge of the ice. The open water below the dam is very broad across. With relatively narrow ice ledges on either bank. Ice was resting on the rock along the west side. Valerie, saw two small individuals from the bridge, looking downstream. We saw about 80 Mudpuppies along the west side, with lots of them right along shore as soon as we came down with the lights. Matt found a cluster of four leopard Frogs under a flat rock close to the west bank. He lifted the rock after he had seen something just under the edge. Matt and Greg counted about 40 Mudpuppies along the east side, about 9 of them wedged in at the sheltered side of the ledge near the east side of the dam.
There were four hanging on between the two ice-free spillways. Total count is 120. Temp at departure, 22:30 is -18C, sky still clear.
My last posting on Mud Puppy Night ... just to make sure that I do not outlast my welcome (since I go every Friday and when special groups come out). Friday's trip yielded over a hundred of the little dears again. And for those of you that do a lot of winter herping photography .... some photographer's hints!
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
