I found this fella lurking at the bottom of one of my garden daphnia tubs - which explains the lack of daphnia in there . 100% aquatic. Approximately 8cm total length.

Yours for a 10 donation to caudata.org. Postage free. UK only.

Eeek! What an opportunity!

I have a 24"x12"x12" that has eight Ghost shrimp (Palaemonetes) in it.
It's heavily planted (Anubiais, Java fern, Java moss, Elodea, etc) and is completely cycled (twice weekly tests) and has been established for around three months now.

The thing is that I was planning to have a Xenopus laevis or two in that tank.....but I've just read the care-sheet (being otherwise unfamiliar) Caudata Culture Species Entry - Pleurodeles waltl and it's got me thinking...

(As for food, I have an established organic garden and I'm 10 minutes walk from 'Pets-at-Home'.
I'm about two hours drive (courier?) from you, which might prove handy.)

I'm not exactly dead-set, as such, on the idea of a clawed frog but the opportunity to be the proud keeper of a P waltl would be a great experience.

That is a lovely animal indeed, and I think that the donation to Caudata is a top idea, by the way

Please PM me with your thoughts on the matter, Mark

Cheers KW

Hi Mark, I'd feel honoured to house this little chap!
I'd like to PM you tomorrow with details about my tank set-up, location, and other details for your consideration.
PS. The donation to Caudata.org is a nice touch
