probably because the aussies frequent the axie forum and probably don't look at the rest of the site.

Brian, for some reason i can't see photos, what is it a photo of?

There is one Australian (Stipe Puric), but you have to click on his name in order to be able to see "over there" on the other side of the worldClick the image to open in full size.

Yes, Brian, I'm drooling, though not with any desire to acquire. What is it, and may I possibly use the photo?

Hi Jenn,

Feel free to use the photo...I have a couple others (photos that is) I'll send you separately, along with the species name...let's see if anyone else recognizes it...amazing what you'll find at Petco labeled as a fire-bellied newt...Click the image to open in full size.

Looks like some flavour of Salamandra.

Hi John,

Some have argued that it should be, rather than what it's classified as. There are definite similarities in appearance, though it is a bit smaller that most Salamandra...

Hint...the other species (1) of this genus looks quite different...it's also rarely seen by hobbyists, but perhaps more common than the one in my photo...Holy Grail stuff, really...

Jenn, please email me privately with your email address, the one I had from the last time we corresponded bombed on me...

Brian

Thanks. That's helpful. Not Salamandra but I don't know what it is. Please put me out of my misery, Brian.

It looks like a Lyciasalamandra.. although there are very few pictures to compare with. Just a guess.

From Amphibiaweb for e.g.
"S. luschani antalyana: The dorsal side is yellow with dark spots, or vice versa. The lateral band is yellowish and not clearly defined. The ventral side is yellowish. The members of this subspecies are easily recognized by the conspicuous yellow parotoids and eye patch."

Very good Ralf, wasn't aware of the subspecies status, nor the change of species name, but it is the former Mertensiella luschani. I had the rare opportunity to see a few a couple of years ago. Truly magnificent animals!

Hey Ralf and Marc (and Jenn and John),

just did a quick search with the new taxonomy and I see that Amphibiaweb has a number of very nice photos of the several!?! subspecies of Lyciasalamandra luschani including antalyana for your viewing pleasure... guess I've been out of the loop too long and missed all the big re-classifications. But hey, I'm back and will try to pay more attention this time...
