How long does it take for a salamander egg to hatch.

Development and hatching of amphibian eggs is largely dependent upon temperature. The warmer the water temperature is, the quicker embryos will develop and hatch. Eggs usually hatch within 30 days of being laid, but it can take up to two months!
