Default Does anyone know anything about salamanders?

I've been googling but I'm not finding what I need...

this morning I raked a black spotted salamander out from under the porch (completely by accident). I can't tell if I've done him any harm, so I wanted to make sure he was good to go. I'm in New Hampshire, and it's been cold, so I'm afraid I may have interrupted his hibernation.

I loaded up one of my hedgie's carrying cages with dirt, rocks and ferns from the area I raked him out of, and dug a little container of water with rocks so that it's more of a puddle than bath. I made sure there were some worms and slugs in there (all from the original dirt.) It's been several hours and he's starting to move around - I don't think he's hurt.

I'd like to put him in the most optimal place for him to survive...

I know there are people here with reptiles and such so I figured I'd just throw it out there...

You can put him outside in a damp area with lots of leave litter, logs etc. where he can burrow.

Agreed with Draenog. Salamanders are pretty hardy. If he's using all his legs and moving around he's probably fine. Find him a spot where he can burrow and let him loose.

I own two salamanders. They're tough little dudes!
