Rep: Fishmommy3 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hi from Toronto

I'm new to the forum. I just got into newt keeping. Found a girl selling Spanish ribbed newt hatchlings and decided to try them out (after researching of course). They are now about 9 weeks old and doing great!
I'm from Toronto and it's pretty hard trying to find newts around here. Would love to get my hands on fire bellied newts but haven't been successful......looking forward to learning more through this forum..

Rep: Jensino has shown reliable knowledge
Default Re: Hi from Toronto

Welcome to the Forum,

I can't believe that it's so hard to get fire-belly-newts in north america (although I know it's true). According to Salamanders: Keeping and Breeding, by Pasmans, Bogaerts, Janssen, & Sparreboom (2014), 2.3 millions has been imported to the U.S. between 2001 and 2009. Where have all those animals gone?
Where I am from you get imported animals for 10 and captive bred ones for 12 all year 'round in fish stores. At this price difference it's definitely worth buying the captive bred newts.

But spanish ribbed newts and fire belly newts are equally fun and easy to keep. You will have a great joy to care for them.
