I got some juvenile spotted salamanders at the weekend
I havent come accross a care sheet for spotted sals-[Ambystoma maculatum ] online, but mine are being kept in an escape proof tank, substrate of composted bark soil improver, with slates, moss, pieces of wood and a small very shallow water bowl.
I will be feeding them on a variety of suitably sized items, including live bloodworm[offered on damp kitchen paper], earthworms, slugs, waxmoth larvae etc.
From what I can gather from other people keeping this species, they are not very bold and hardly ever seen, but if kept cool enough and fed well, they do fine.
