I keep dwarf mudpuppies, they are simply small versions of the larger
mudpuppy. They eat crayfish, ghost shrimp, and earth worms. I have been trying to get
them to breed for about four years now but no luck so far. All they do is eat
me out of house and home and look like little sausages with tiny legs
sticking out.
