    Who's hungry?

    My mice produced a surplus, so Tiger got a rare treat Tiger's a blotched tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum melanostictum). I think I've had him about 13 years now.

    Matt the coloration puzzles me. All the tiger salamanders I have seen have had bright yellow markings. Is this something that fades with age or what?

    That looks similar to the salamanders that run around Saskatchewan in the summer time

    It depends on the subspecies and whether or not they've just shed. After a fresh shed he's a bright olive green, with black webbing, making a blotched pattern, but that's cause he's Ambystoma tigrinum melanostictum. The ones you've seen are probably eastern tiger salamanders. There are many subspecies all across the U.S. There's some dispute over whether all but the eastern should be moved to Ambystoma mavortium subspecies. I know that the california tiger salamander was somewhat recently given its own species, seperate from the rest of the tigers, but still in Ambystoma. Here are a few:
