I want to breed newts in captivity in the USA. Mainly newts that are hard to find. I want to do this because of the rareness and the high price when they are found. I have already started by hibernating some species this month. I'm Basically looking for anyone that wants to donate "pairs" of species for this expedition. I will offer money or trades if you wish. I'm basically open to any newt/sallie except for fire bellies (cynops o) that are found everywhere! (especially European origin genus because of popularity.)

I will , of course, share any morphs that happen from this. The first on the list will be people that helped me.

I have an entire basement that features air and heat(if needed), a personal/exclusive fridge for hibernation and numerous tanks for larvae and adults.


Email me any questions and if you want to help by trading/donating/selling pairs of adults.


Thanks in advance guys/gals.
Steve

Hi Steve,

That's certainly a noble endeavour. I think as soon as the USCR gets going *pokes Aaron in the ribs* you might find this easier, or at least there will be more potential participants.

All the best.

Hi John,

Unfortunately I'm sworn to secrecy. I can't even tell you what the letters stand for or Aaron (and then Nate) will have my hide Click the image to open in full size..

I have to leave it to Aaron to answer that one.

All the best.

hmmmm....lemme guess...U.S. Caudate Registry? U.S. Caudate Ranch? whatever it is, I would imagine our neighbors to the north might prefer to see it called NACR...

...which reminds me, what's the difference between Caudate and Caudata?

I'm not 100% sure what USCR means, but it might be Unhappy Spouses in Crappy Relationships Click the image to open in full size..

Caudata is the taxonomical order within Class Amphibia. I personally don't use the term Caudate, but it seems to have passed into common usage amongst certain hobbyists. I would interpret Caudate in English to mean simply "tailed", but people use it to mean any salamander or newt.

The problem with including Canada is that you still have to import newts and sals (or more conveniently referred to as Caudates, John :P }) to the US just like to Europe or Japan etc. As importing/collecting laws grow harsher here in the US, having cb species in Canada does not help the US situation, nor does having cb sals in the US help the Canadians.

Well, I agree with you 100%. I'm in Canada but live RIGHT next door to Detroit MI (can see it from my front porch). So if you need any help setting something up let me know...but I understand the border problems...damn customs.
