What are the feeding habits of a Salamander?

    While it depends on the type and location of the Salamander, in general, Salamanders are nocturnal and have a carnivorous diet. They live in cool moist areas such as rocks and logs and therefore feed on the local biota including centipedes, spiders, arthropods, invertebrates, worms, insects, and even other Salamanders. Once Salamanders catch their prey they use their sharp teeth to constrain and then chew the food. Additionally, Salamanders can use their protruding tongues to grasp their prey.

    When salamanders are very young, they’ll eat microorganisms that exist in pools of water (where the salamanders are born).  As they age, they graduate to different kinds of insects and insect larvae.  See the link for more information.
