Three Toed Amphiuma (Amphiuma tridactylum)

$74.99
A strange, primitive species of aquatic salamander, the Three-toed Amphiuma is found in shallow, swampy habitat throughout much of the Southeastern US. Eel-like in appearance and behavior, they have 2 tiny front limbs, no rear legs, and largely useless eyes, instead using their lateral line and sense of smell to navigate and find prey. They should be kept in a fully aquatic setup with hiding places like driftwood or caves, and like all amphibians they require excellent water quality. Tanks should be tightly covered as they can climb or jump out if allowed to.
