Hematology and plasma biochemistry parameters were determined for 34 captive-born California tiger salamanders (Ambystoma californiense). The animals were manually restrained for general examination and venipuncture. This is the first comprehensive report of hematology and plasma biochemistry parameters in apparently healthy California tiger salamanders and may serve as a reference for clinical assessment and future study of this species.
