We found our salamander on my grandfather's farm and brought him home as a pet. We were able to care for him for about two years before he died. He was very simple to care for; we kept him in an aquarium with moist soil and a dish of water, and we fed him crickets acquired from the local pet stores. He seemed to thrive on this and never contracted any illnesses. He was also very happy with being handled; he was very gentle and docile.
