I recently purchased a male het leucistic spanish ribbed newt from Michael Shrom. He replied to my email quick and got the animal out in the mail right away. I received the animal on time in perfect condition. It was packed with foam insulation and in a large container with spagnum moss. I put him into the tank with my two females and literally within 5 minutes he was amplexing one of them. I now have over 200 eggs and counting. It was really great doing business with Michael and I am extremely happy with my new newt.

I've purchased several H. cyanurus from Michael and they've always arrived healthy and packaged well. His customer communication has always been good as well. I'd reccomend him as a source.

I purchased 5 Notophthalmus Viridescens efts from Shrom. Great communication and packaging. He was also able to hold them for me for a bit while I was out of town. Great seller, highly recommended.

Nothing but good experiences with Michael over the years. In addition to salamanders, he is a great source for oddball isopods and other feeders. I do not keep as many caudates now as I once did but have found that the various isopods that I once purchased from him and now culture are eagerly accepted by geckos, chameleons, etc.

Hi Kate,
Thanks for the praise. Are you sure I didn't sell you something other than Notophthalmus viridescens? Maybe it was Lissotriton. I havn't sold any N. viridiscens since the 70's. It isn't legal for me to sell them in Pa.

I cannot edit my first comment. I did not get my Notos from Michael. I got some starter culture of springtails though. Very well packed all are still alive and repopulating like crazy for me. :)

Got springtails and isopods from Michael recently. Great communication, speedy shipping, well packaged, and he sent generous culture sizes. Super pleased with my purchase, I will definitely buy from him again. Thanks!

I bought some kaiser newts from Michael recently. He was great about communication and making sure the animals were shipped in acceptable weather conditions. All three arrived nicely packaged in great condition. Very bright and healthy!

I've also purchased salmon pellets from Michael. He was super fast about shipping them. My axies love them (as does my dog who happened to get into a bag of them).

Received 2 fire salamanders from him a couple of days ago, they are eating and doing very well in their new homes. I would highly recommend people get their animals from him when possible.

Another happy customer. Received a plump and active juvenile ribbed newt, even better looking than the pics and bigger than expected. Was very nicely and securely packed, and I noticed actual postage was five bucks more than he charged me. Recommended!

Nothing but good words for Michael! I received 5 cynops cyanurus from him this afternoon they are all doing fantastic and already chowing down on worms.

I had nothing but a great experience with Michael Shrom's Above Average Amphibians recently. He answered all my questions very quickly, the newts arrived in pristine condition; packed and boxed nice and safely; and shipped exactly as agreed.

Someday, Lord and bigger home willing, I'd definitely check out what he has newtin' about when I add another species to my collection/dragon army)

I received a few dozen mixed axolotl eggs and a male Danube crested newt today and once again I am way impressed how professional they were packed n sent and the quality of the eggs and newt are unbelievable. I am blown away by the coloring of this male particular. He is awesome!


Michael is definitely one my favorite folks to get eggs from and he way over counted even a very small order. I appreciate that a lot Michael times are tough here..

Thank you in have a blessed winter season
