I was speaking in generalities and not attacking anybody. The T. verrocusus I started with came from that whole Britt Fiasco. I was lucky to get my money back for the animals I didn't get from him. I've bred a lot of T. verrocusus over the years. Last year I produced some and Dawn produced some. I wound up selling offspring from her breeders and from my breeders.

Anyhow I was trying to say it's interesting to make a list of what we have. Many of us become obsessive and want the next big thing that comes along. Each additional species kept makes it more difficult to manage a collection.

I did want to than Jake Publicly for the good feed back he left me as a breeder and seller.

Yea. I didn't import them. Britt imported them and I got all that were available from him. If I looked through my notes I could figure out who Britt was. I really don't remember.

0,0,4 Paramesotriton (Laotriton) laoensis

I've now got a 'collection plan' and I'm focusing on European species.

I think I'm about to become a Triturus and Salamandra kleptomaniac if I'm not careful

Great poll!
I have 5. N.v.v. and counting...(they're laying eggs) 1. P. cinereus, and 1.A. maculatum. Also around 30 recent hatchling that I am fairly certain are also A. maculatum.

Wow, I'm like... one of... two? people who have only one.
I've only seen TWO salamanders in my life, my tiger, and the first ones I've seen, Eurycea neotenes. (If I can spell.) So this is like, mind blowing to me. I don't even know where to find a pet salamander. (Mine was a gift when he was a larvae.)
And nope, never seen a newt.

Default Re: What kind of Newt/Sal(s) do you have?

I think I am having newt/salamander envy here. I just have one species, C. orientalis, because I happened to stumble upon some malnourished ones and had to have them. Since then I have looked at some other species, but I am hesitant to get anything until I have my degree. The sheer number of species available blows my mind though!
