Caudata, or Urodela, are the Tailed Amphibians known as Newts and Salamanders in English, Molche und Salamander auf Deutsch, les Tritons et les Salamandres en Français, los Salamandras en Español and Хвостатые земноводные по-русски (Russian).

[ T-Shirt]Funded by donations from users like yourself, our mission has always been to facilitate the sharing of accurate science-based information about newts and salamanders, with an emphasis on their maintenance in captivity. The Discussion Forum is frequented by hundreds of people every day. We have members from all over the world. Some are scientists, some are zookeepers, but most are hobbyists with a friendly enthusiasm for these fascinating creatures. Our forum is the backbone of the community.

And while we do place an emphasis on the maintenance of amphibians in captivity, we also support field work, conservation and scientific research. We are currently accepting applications for the 2010 Research Grant. Our 2009 Research Grant (in conjunction with Amphibian Ark) was awarded to the Chaves Portilla research group at Fundación Ecodiversidad Colombia for their project on the conservation status of the Pandi Mushroom-Tongue Salamander, Bolitoglossa pandi. Magazine is the only English language publication devoted solely to newts and salamanders. Caudata Culture is the world's premier salamander and newt care and information resource, and arguably better than any book. There's a good reason that comes up first on any google or yahoo search for "axolotls": it's the definitive text on the famous Mexican salamander in captivity. You'll find many web sites at

And while you're looking around, why not get a shirt like Pin-pin's in the photo?

We have known for over 2 years that we would eventually be forced into upgrading the forum software to vbulletin 4 (we are currently using vb3). This is because the software maker was bought by another company and they basically took vb3 out into the... [Read More]
