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

    Help!! My nitrates won’t go up! They are at 0ppm and so is my ammonia and nitrites. Can I put my axolotl in the tank without the nitrates or does the axolotl need them? If not how do I get my nitrates up?

  • madcaplaughs:
    0ppm nitrates would indicate your tank isn't cycled and therefore it isn't safe to add in the axolotl.

  • madcaplaughs:
    You should be dosing the tank with ammonia to cycle it, which would then be converted into nitrite and then nitrate.

    @axolotl nerd do you know how to treat fungus correctly? You don't wanna wait. No pressure, but my cousin's axolotl had a tiny bit of fungus on the tail and a day later it took over the whole body and it died.

    does any one know where i can find simple cage setup for fire salamanders on here. I know some like to give it a realistic setup but I always believe in simple setup and care in the right as long as animal is happy.
