Default Hello from northern California and looking for Axolotls

Greetings!

I am new to Caudata and am very excited to be part of an online community so full of information and passionate people. I live in Humboldt County and am hoping to find a couple albino axolotls babies to call my own. I am willing to drive out of state to find some, preferably between southern Oregon to Portland. If I were to find someone willing to ship, that would be awesome too!

I look forward to learning more on this site and thank you all for creating such an amazing resource!

P.S. I know axolotls are illegal in California... I'm currently trying to find more information on obtaining a permit in California. From what I understand, the laws have been put into place to protect native species from hybirdizing with introduced axolotls. I have no intent of releasing axolotls, am responsible enough to contain them and love them enough to deal with the consequences.

Hi there and welcome to the forum.
I guess that the regulation in the US are understandable, but it is so unfortunate for those who are interested in axolotls and other fascinating creatures.
I didn't realise that you could apply for a permit, best of luck with that and please let us know how you get on.
