Question:
I would like to know what waterdogs eat? and habitat and the water temperature.


Replies:
Waterdogs and mudpuppys are salamanders that, like most, prey on whatever smaller animals they can find and catch, insects, mollusks, other arthropods, even small fish at times. They live in a variety of fresh water habitats, usually larger ponds, lakes and rivers, throughout North America. I don't know that they are very particular about water temperature.
