We would always find salamanders in our basement. I remember having to go down there for one thing or another. Since it had a dirt floor the salamanders would be there often. One day my sisters and I decided it would be fun trying to make one a pet. Even though they don’t seem to be too terribly active, well at least the ones we found. They still didn’t really make great pets. They still had special needs and they seemed like a lot of work to take care of and keep healthy. Needless to say we resorted to just visiting them in the basement every once and awhile. I’m sure if we knew how to care for amphibians better than it would have been a better experience but it was what it was back then.
