It has officially been 4 months, and still no sign of Mindy. But sadly I think I know what happened to her, while planting bulbs for this coming spring I dug up mass amounts of baby salamanders in our yard. I couldn't dig a hole without there being mass amounts of them in the dirt from the hole I dug. Then I dug up an adult that was almost Leopard Gecko sized. I think a bird hunting for a salamander in out yard took her, and made a meal of her. While it pains me to know this was her fate at the same time it offers an explanation to what happened to her. RIP. You will be missed Mindy.
