Rep: astronewt is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Introduction

Hi all, Im pleased to finally be a part of
I've been looking at this site ever since I had my first paddletail firebelly when I was in 6th grade back in 2006. I had them for about 6-7 years until I left to attend college back in 2012. Unfortunately the newts died while I was away and I never bothered getting any new pet because I wasn't ready for the commitment and responsibilities. Anyway, I got my first born in 2018 and started living with my partner in Jersey City NJ. We've recently got a permit to own caudata in NJ along with a pair of cynops cyanurus. I've always wanted to be involved in a habitat clean up program or participate in catch, breed, and release program of North American native species conservation. We're both aware of the Chytridiomycosis epidemic that's been causing major decline in world-wide decline of amphibian populations and is deeply concerned about it. I'm excited to join this community and I hope that I can build relationships with those who shares the same love and concern for our amphibious friends.
