The Newt & Salamander Portal

Feb 2nd 2016: The US Salamander Hobby is dying but there's still time to fight the Interstate ban. First, US Hobbyists please take our Survey for real data to give to the USFWS, not the bogus data they used. Second, make a comment on the Federal Register. Anonymous comments won't fly and the Anti-Pet Lobby has made a ton of comments. It's time to step up and make a comment to save your hobby. We can do this if we act together. Click here for talking points and how to comment. We only have until March 14th.
