    Those salamander larvae are really cool! Any idea what species they could be?

    Jcal, what state are you in? (could put that under "Location:" under your avatar )

    Nice pics!

    My gf convinced me that those were tadpoles. I thought those were salamanders! Might make one my new pet.Two of these pools are within 100 yards of my house. Several more around the property. I live in east Tennessee.
    There is a pond with tons of weird milky masses that I will upload pic of later. From the deafening noise I'm sure those are frog egg sacks.

    The external gills are a dead giveaway for sal larvae. They're carnivores so use a quality fish food or something protein-rich if you decide to keep one. There's a huge diversity of species in your area. Make sure you try to get some pictures when they neonate out

    Yeah, the one you have a picture of is a salamander hatchling. Tadpoles don't have external gills like that.

    Thanks for the info. I have Betta food. Will that work? They must be chomping on the fairy shrimp swimming around with them.
