Caudata.org Magazine 1.0

No permission to download
In 2004 several hobbyists and professionals came together to write articles for issue 1 of Caudata.org Magazine. At the time we had hoped it would become a regular publication, but finding enough original articles from authors in a timely fashion was a challenge and we never published issue 2. Some of what would have been in issue 2 was added to Caudata Culture and, indeed, that site expanded its scope to serve as the main replacement for the magazine itself.

This one-off issue remains a testament to the knowledge and professionalism of hobbyists in the Caudata.org community at the time. It has subsequently been cited/referenced in other media, including Tim Johnson's article on the Natural History of Cynops ensicauda popei in the late Max Sparreboom's 2014 text "Salamanders of the Old World".

The contents of Issue 1 were as follows:

Both useful for the hobbyist at any level, specific enough for the biologist and well written to enjoy as a read. Like finding s little gold in the Sierra Madre's, without the greed (well, maybe inducing a touch of greed to have more newts at home).
Very Cool

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
