Caudata.org Magazine

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

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal
