Gorgeous ... I'm green with envy. :D

Where did you locate your crested newts, if I might ask? Were they a one-time thing at your local pet store, did you order them online, or did you ask the pet store to order them for you?

Ashley, most people here get their animals from other breeders.

That's great—so the forums are a good way to get just the right species of newt, captive bred and not wild-caught?

these are an other kind of crested newt than we have in nature. In UK and the Netherland we have the triturus cristatus crested newt.

The ones Hugo Keeps is the triturus dobrogicus crested newt. They do not live in the Dutch nature

Hi,

All my crested newts are captive bred.
And, Rob, besides the T.Dobrogicus, the pictures also show some, T. carnifex, T. karelinii and T. karelinii Kaukasus.

Indeed the T.cristatus are not allowed to keep in the Netherlands, but i guess i have a great alternative with these species.

Is shipping overseas a little out-of-the-question with live animals, given poaching laws?

Hugo, lovely newts:)

Ashley, it's probably out of the question to ship them overseas, and also probably unnecessary. Try posting a "wanted" ad for the species you are interested in. There are several reputable US breeders of crested newts, and many hobbyists end up with excess as they breed like rabbits. As you are in Florida, you might want to consider more temp-tolerant species, or else you need a good reliable AC system.
