Spotted Salamander (Ambystoma maculatum)

Description:

Spotted Salamanders are black in color with yellow spots, giving them their name. They typically grow between 6-8 inches long. They can live over 15 years if properly cared for.

Habitat and Tank Requirements:

This species is native to the Eastern US.

This species is mostly terrestrial and can live in a land-based aquarium set up so long as they have a shallow water bowl large enough for them to soak in. This water should be changed at least once every other day. Misting the tank with water every day or two is also recommended.

Use mulch or moss as a substrate to retain moisture and deep enough that your salamander can burrow in it. Add plants, woods, or rocks for them to hide in. A 15-20 gallon tank can house 1 or 2 adults.

These animals are comfortable in temperatures ranging from 65-72 F. They do not need special lighting.

Be sure there are no openings through which your salamander can escape. A hole large enough for it to stick its head through is big enough for it to escape.

Diet:

Spotted Salamanders are mainly insectivorous and will feed on small crickets, mealworms, wax worms, earthworms, and any other insects small enough for them to ingest. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.

Handling:

Allow your salamander time to become accustomed to its new home before handling them extensively. Handling them little by little over a period of time lets the animal get used to you and reduces stress.
