New Years Babies

After the tragic escape of Storm a couple of months ago 3 days after being born, I was prepared this time with a solid 2.5 gallon aquarium with a fitted mesh screen :) When I found another clutch of two eggs a couple of months ago, I went ahead and got the habitat ready for the babies when they hatched.

This morning, no babies.

Tonight, both babies had hatched. They seem to be doing well in their new home.

Thunder is really interesting, because (s)he has no markings other than a single white patch near the base of the tail. I really look forward to seeing how the markings come out with age:

Lightening has amazing markings, but I know that doesn't mean they will remain the same. Ignore the fact that (s)he still has vermiculite in the shots.

I don't know much about salamanders, but I did orginally want a Beardie. I finally talked myself out of it despite the fact that they are really sociable creatures. Two things stopped me - they take a LOT of fresh food preparation (I'm lazy) and they get BIG so you'll have to have a 55 gallon or larger aquarium as they grow. But they are damn cute and the little arm waving thing is the coolest. :)
