So remember those salamanders I was so excited about a few months ago? After three months, they’re dead. We’re not sure how or why, they both died within a couple of days of one another. My younger son sobbed–times two. We were all shocked and upset. Mostly because I feel like we failed them somehow, even though we did everything we were supposed to. At least I think we did. The question is, do you rush out to replace them? Or do we go for another pet? One theory is that they couldn’t survive our New York winter, despite the red bulb shining on them at all times. Do we go for fish instead and see how we do? Please advise.
