Unhappy Axolotl in Israel?

Hi,

due to dire circumstances I have to move back to Israel. Now I have 4 lovely axolotls I hate to rehome but I heard that importing amphibians to Israel is illegal. So I guess I'll leave them with the serpentary at the Belgian coast But since this breaks my heart, I'd like to know if I can find and keep axolotls in Israel. I'd love to keep me some axlotl again Any knowledge on this?

Oh so they can be bought in Israel! Great! But doesn't that mean they can/have to be imported, too? If possible, I'd like to keep my lovely Baby Shimon Peres, Tita, Kerli and Uzi

If you love them enough.. You may be able to get special permission from the government, or get a permit or something. Im not sure. Im definitely no expert. But thats what id look into.

Thanks. So I sent an email today to the vet office in Israel that deals with import and export, begging for an exception. I hope I get a pleasant reply...

I asked the ministeries of fisheries and nature and stuff, but they all turned me down Now there's eggs to rehome, too.

Old thread, new questions! Is there a market in Israel? Some pet shop say amphibians may not be sold, in others however, I saw newts. Google didn't yield much...
