These are bright colored and fun animals! The tiger salamander makes a great addition to a terrarium. They have aggressive appetites and are fun to feed.
One extra fun benefit to this species is buying them when they are "water dogs" or the larval stage and watching them turn into the adult salamander. Of my newts and salamanders I have owned this species is ranked near the top. Easy to maintain, and large enough to really enjoy.
