    I have tons of pictures of the development of salamanders. from the eggs in the wild to pictures under the microscope of the eggs (every day) and the larvae... do you REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to see them? I have to dig through and put them in my site... and I'm lazier than a sloth :P

    Yup, I would like really like to see them. How did you ever come across those eggs? I've been trying for a few years now to get my hands on salamander eggs. Lucky you!

    rats! lol. I'll try to post 'em tomorrow.
    how did I come across them? umm... looking in temp pools/ponds. well... actually the eggs I kept were on a tiny tire print. I thought they might be in danger of drying out or getting squished by truck. I also took the smallest cluster I could find. only about twenty eggs in that one. (lol... yes, only. the others are huge!)
    actually... about now would be a good time too look for them. the easiest ones to ID are spotted salamander eggs.

    You found the salamander eggs in a tire track? Good thing those eggs were happened upon by you or I am of the opinion they most assuredly would have been toast. We have on occasion found green frogs peering up at us from standing water in tire tracks but never any eggs. And yes, we look for treasures such as what you found.

    chrous frogs also like laying eggs in tire tracks. That's the only place i've found them. They are ridiculously slimy! you can't pick them up because they go through your fingers.
    Last weekend my mom and I went to a park and there's this pool with TONS of spotted salamander eggs. The thing is 95% of them were dead!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] the crazy weather is messing them up.
    one thing that's interesting about spotted salamander eggs is that they get a symbiotic (mutualistic) algae in them. I don't know how the heck they get in there but the algae gets IN the eggs and provides them with oxygen. The eggs give them CO2 (darn... you can't do the subscript here) and nutrients. I even grew the algae for a while. really nice bright green color. I forgot what happened to them though... I think some daphnia got in there and ate them all :-/
    Now I don't have any free-swimming algae NOR daphnia [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    O.K I got the eggs today, but when I got home I ralised I had waaay too many and I had to discard lots of them by throwing them into the grass.
    I have about 20-25 eggs. Do you think that this is still too much?
