    So, I don't know what the deal is, but I went to get some crickets, and ended up with a small Tiger Salamander too! I was so excited, I haven't had one since I was a kid! It's only about 4 inches long very healthy, and my husband named it Greedo! LOL!:p I paid $10 for it, Im such a sucker! I promise one of these days I'll get some pictures posted, I have a ton of them on my camera.

    My eastern tiger salamander is housed in a 10 gal with 4 inches of top soil and a 3 inch deep water dish. If you can get your hands on some earthworms they're better for him the crickets don't pass through his digestive tract like worms do. I use a pothos plant for my decor and a cave. mist the soil about 3 times a day. they like to dig so he will dig the plant up but those plants are fairly strong and will reroot. I also just purchased some live frog moss if u can get your hands on some its ideal for the moisture and the salamander will poop in it and the moss will clean it up for you. =))

    I didn't know if you were asking for help but there you go. lol


    ps. his tank temp should be between 75-80 and if u have a glass cover thats best because it will keep the moisture in the tank.
