Angry Abused Tiger Salamander?

I've recently rescued a tiger salamander from an abusive pet shop. They were keeping the poor guy in an aquatic tank with a Red-Eared Slider. the water was disgusting and it has a fungal infection. any advice on keeping this guy would be great ( i have kept other salamanders and newts before) and the most efficient way to get rid of the infection would be much appreciated information. I'm writing a report on this pet shop and intend to turn in my documentation to animal services. (The shop is keeping 4-5 dogs in one cage, 20+ young Bearded dragons together in a 30 gal tank, dead, dehydrated Pacman Frogs among other atrocities.) Help on reporting this would be great as well! Thanks!Abused Tiger Salamander?-12483675_1658920931042917_652174947_n.jpg

Poor thing, Here are a couple of articles from over on Caudata Culture that will hopefully help if you haven't seen them already.

Ah, thank you so much! I have read those indeed, a while before i decided to get an account here. i was quite invested in this place as a lurker. this is the enclosure i have for the guy when he's out of quarantine. (his tail has turtle bite marks on them as well.)Abused Tiger Salamander?-12483917_1659036851031325_1439550125_n.jpg

I hope you'll have success with this guy.

Unfortunately, it's a bad signal for the pet shop you bought it from. The seller certainly thinks poor captive conditions, ill animals, is not a problem for his business.

You might want to think about reporting the pet store im sure your area will be covered by some animal welfare regulations
