I caught the first one last spring in the Toccoa while fishing for catfish. Didn't know they got that big (about two feet long) and thought I had caught a world record salamander...
A couple of nights ago I was bored and made a bait attracting light; a car headlight floating on the styrofoam this computer was packed in. Put it in an eddy behind my house, threw in some chicken bones for good measure and waited/watched.
FEB, and the water temp is 38. A three inch tadpole slowly moves toward a chicken bone. Have I had too many beers? I caught the little fellow and took him to a friends house, threw him in an aquarium that's about 70 degrees and he's thriving.
So, not only do they have a very funky life cycle but they're tough as well. Does anyone know more about them or where I can learn more? (Has to be on the net, I'm far from a decent library) Just curious...
