View Full Version : Greetings from Wales

27th June 2007, 19:53
Hi all. I'm a bit late filling this in. I'm Peter, age 41, from Wales in the UK. I keep paddletails, and I'm waiting on my first fire salamander. In the past I have kept a rescue palmate newt. This site has been a blessing and in my experience has greatly added to the pleasure of newt keeping.

Hi Peter. It's good to have you here. I used to live in Bristol and I like Wales a lot. Good luck with your fire salamander.

I am also a new member and share your opinion of the site being a godsend!

If you need advice and tips the two guys I have found to be very helpful (And certainly VERY knowledgeable) are Mike East and Ian Riggs.

I have kept Fires over the years (Currently have 3 adult Terrestris between 4-7 yrs old) and 31 captive bred juveniles. If I can be of any help, feel free to contact.

I am sure that we are all thrilled with the site and the community that exists through it.

Just for your info, if ever you need to know any Axy stuff...get in touch with Ian Riggs...
