The next day I came in and it looked like there had never been a problem with the ones tail beside a slight discoloration! I wish humans healed that fast...

    BTW- it is not normal for the amphiuma's to bite each other, one tried to catch a fish, but it missed and ended up biting the others tail, it took a lot of convincing to get it to let go.
    Better hope he doesn't have the taste for cannibalism now

    I wish they would breed! Unfortunately though absolutely nothing is known about these species breeding habits . I'll try to video tape them tomorrow when I feed them and up-load it here!

    They can be bred in captivity although, it would take a large and somewhat elaborate set up. Probably easier to do in an outdoor pond with a sloping land area with stones and other debris along the shore. They usually breed between January and April, during this time the males will have obviously swollen cloacal openings. They breed in much the same way as other salamanders and newts with the male depositing a spermatophore which is received by the female. Eggs are always laid on land under rocks, logs or in burrows close to the shore. Eggs can take a long time to hatch, approximately 6 months. The larvae are pretty cool looking, like miniature versions of the adults only with external gills.

    Made a video of them eating, I just put the music in there to mute the audio since a bunch of people were talking in the background:
