It depends on the type of salamander you are talking about and what stage of its life cycle it is in. There are three types of salamanders: aquatic, semi-aquatic and terrestrial. Most salamanders eat crickets, flies, worms, slugs and roaches. Pill bugs and beetles are favorite foods for terrestrial salamanders. The younger the salamander, the smaller the insects it eats. As the salamander grows, so does the size of its prey. White worms, mealworms, bloodworms and kingworms are also good food for the salamanders. Mealworms can only be offered once a week, because the shells can cause digestive problems.
If its a pet you are keeping, you should feed them as much as they will eat at least two times a week, a diet of various insects including earthworms, wax worms, crickets, and spiders. Younger salamanders need to be fed more frequently than older ones. You can also coat the insects in a vitamin/mineral supplement for reptiles to ensure their health.
First of all, Salamanders are apart of the amphibian family. There are 350 species of Salamanders. People often mistake Salamanders for lizards. Unlike lizards, Salamanders have soft, moist skin and have no scales, claws, or external ear openings and instead of four toes like lizards, Salamanders have five toes in their front feet.
The majority of Salamanders are carnivores. Their diet consists of insects, small invertebrates, fish,worms, snails and slugs. They can often be found hiding under logs, stones and damp leaf litter. Salamanders can be found in the Americas, the Himalayas and in temperate zones like in Northern Africa, Asia and Europe
