Popeye and SweetPea, the Pets of the Day
Name: Popeye, SweetPea
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tiger Salamanders
Home: Brookings, South Dakota, USA
   Popeye (left) and SweetPea (right) are a barred tiger salamander and a blotched tiger salamander respectively. These two are the weirdest couple of tiger salamanders on the planet. Both are very tame and love to have their head and sides rubbed. Popeye thinks salamanders live in trees because he likes to climb the vines in his cage. 'Pea is more laid back and spends most of the day resting. But both are ready for action when supper comes. Another fun pastime is digging up all the moss in the tank and putting it in water dishes. But most the time you'll find these two sleeping side by side cuddling.
