Default Wanted. Fire salamanders

I am after a pair of fire salamanders for my spare tank. Posted or local to me in Leicester.
I have been offered a pair but the seller says he would post when he has time.
This is for 2 small ones about 2 inches long. But I do not know if he would post the day after payment or days later when he 'can be bothered to' or 'when ' he has time'.

Hi Ian, it's a thing these days on the internet wondering about being taken for a ride etc or misinterpreting people's comments. This guy doesn't sit around all day waiting for a call and probably has a lot of other things on his mind and some times getting stock sorted and packed off is just not at the head of the queue. If they are youngsters, presumably this year's, then the longer he has them the more successful it will be for you. Pay first, receive them as and when. If there's an issues, you can always rate him etc on this forum. Do you know the subspecies? My biggest concern is people and inflated prices who target those new to the hobby.

Thanks for the info. The other seller is on facebook. I have seen photos of the young salamanders. But with it being facebook, I know there are scammers and all sorts on there. I would prefer to buy from a proper forum like this one. If I buy from him, it will be in about 2 weeks. Its for 2 fire salamanders. I dont know the sub species yet. But will ask him. The price for 2 posted is 28. 10 each and 8 post.

The sub species are Terrestis. I have been chatting to the seller. They are a few months old and about 3 cm he said. I should be buying in a couple of weeks.

Hello Ian, what does he mean by a few months old and how does this relate to the youngsters in the photo? They look quite young to me.

It's a good price.
Sorry about the high frequency of posts here but this place has started sending my comments for vetting with the moderators, something it's not done for ages. So, I couldn't edit in my additional comments.

Hi. Thanks for the replies and concerns. This is what was asked and replied from him.
Starting with me asking.
"Sounds good to me. I am setting a tank up and will be looking when it is ready. How old are the ones you have

few months still tiny about 3cm. do you have paypal

Yes I do.

let me know when ready

Thanks. Will do.
Then he sent me a pic when I asked.

This is the FB link https://www.facebook.com/groups/Sama...ForSaleWanted/

He has not listed any for a while and I enquired on a post he had posted earlier in the year.
His name on FB is Billy Head

One is a selling group and the other is the forum chat and showing group run by the same people.

Why are these so addictive. lol
I have received two small fire salamander terrestris today from Billy Head. These were from facebook, but I think he is a member on here as he does give this site link on FB. They arrived as planned. I have also bought two spotted ones from Germany. I am hoping I get then tomorrow or it might be in a couple of weeks. When my two come out, I will get some pics of them. :)

Hi Billy.
Sorry I have not replied earlier, I have not had a notification saying you replied on post.
The 2 from you are doing great. Fast on their feet. lol They look healthy and not losing weight. They did eat a couple of crickets and fruitfly and I think they are still eating them as I put them in the tank and have to put more in cos the food goes.
I find them in the leaves and then they are gone and cant find them for a while until they settle and I find them again. Its like playing hide and seek with them.
