Default CB Ambystoma talpoideum, lesser sirens

I currently have a number of A. talpoideum (mole salamander) metamorphs for sale. They're currently aquatic, and with a proper setup they can be maintained like this, but I generally recommend keeping them terrestrially. If you do keep them aquatic, which can work for talpoideum, be sure to provide land areas and/or floating objects so they don't drown. Some of these animals have been transformed since last summer and have been doing fine aquatically, but some do tend to prefer hanging around floating objects at night.

These are F1 animals, born from four neotenic adults I raised from eggs in outdoor enclosures. They're almost two years old, but most are only starting to morph right now. I don't know how many I have; it all depends on how many continue morphing and which end up being neotenes, but there are around 10-20 for available now.

I also have a few of my CB lesser sirens (S. i. intermedia) from last year still available. They're doing well and eat almost any food you can feed them (fake crab, pieces of shrimp, turtle pellets, pieces of dry dog food/treats, and live insects like mosquito larvae and Daphnia). There's twelve left, but four of these seem to be runts and haven't grown much. The four smaller animals are available, but only by request; otherwise I'd like to see if they'll put some size on if kept alone.

Talpoideum are $20 each, and the sirens are $25. I may consider trades for eggs. Please feel free to contact me for any questions, and please include a zipcode for a shipping quote. Thanks!

Sorry, not unless you'd be willing to purchase an export permit for me!

All sirens are sold, aside from a few that are too small, but there are still lots of talpoideum left.
