    this should go in the salamander section but I find the General forum is more active...
    so I have a 2 inch spotted salamander juvenile that just lost his gills and left the water, he's now black and the little yellow spots are starting to appear. He was very easy to feed when he lived in the water but now he's very inactive and clumsy (I know that's normal since he just burrows all the time, he's a mole salamander) but it makes it hard to feed him. I don't want to just dump worms in his tank and hope he finds them, I kinda want to "supervise" his first meals to make sure everything is going fine. Any tips?

    Would he be receptive to tongs?

    it sucks I don't even know where he is in his tank now, I know he's in there but he's hiding 100% of the time.

    Alas your only choice may be to just dump a whole bunch of small worms in there and hope he finds them.

    well I found him yesterday (I basically dug him out to make sure he was still alive) and he looked fine, and OK on the "fatness" side, too bad he doesn't show himslef more often. But you know what they say, the less you see you herp in his tank, the happier and safer he probably feals.
