The salamanders hatched!

Yesterday it was so fun watching them wiggle out of their eggs and swim to cling to the sides of our makeshift pond…

This morning I measured them, and they range from 8.5 mm to 9 mm here’s what they look like…

Aren’t they adorable???


Today’s mission… to find a local pond to get fresh water from for the little buggers…

And those looking for camping pics… you’ll have to wait until my sister in law emails me hers…  my camera was accidentally left behind…

    Those salamander babies are cute, they do look like tadpoles! 🙂

    Cute! I bet the kids are loving watching them grow.

    They look like tadpoles, lol. I think I’ll pass on raising them though, grandkids and salamanders, well I can only imagine.

    I was leaving a comment and I think I might have hit something on the keyboard…but it disappeared. Salamanders are so cool. We’ll follow along with yours. They’re not something we can find living around here. Last fall I read my kids The Salamander Room. You might want to see if your library has that book. Have fun with the babies. That’s going to be a lot of salamanders…

    Happy, happy, joy, joy… Do I get a new photo every morning if I’m a good girl? 😉
