I recommend the tiger salamander. It has a very hearty appetite and an interesting personality -- they seem to recognize you as their keeper after a while in expectation of being fed... The barred variety is particularly attractive, and they are simple to keep, but due to their large size, really need at least a 15 gallon or 20 gallon long tank. Also it may be best to keep just one specimen because they have such big appetites, 2 might quarrel over food...

Well, you can order them from various online suppliers... One that I recommend is reptilecity.com, I have have had good experiences with them in general, and they have very reasonable prices. They have free shipping for orders of $100 or more.

It’s a good idea to make sure it’s legal to have certain tiger salamanders in your state, since there aren’t any captive bred tiger salamander operations here in america and i imagine if you did manage to get a captive bred tiger it would be awfully expensive since most are just taken from the wild.
