Crocodile Newt

I just picked up 4 "crocodile newts" from the Metro NY reptile exp. They were only $10 each and I think they are actually Paramesotriton... but not certain. Any tips on making certain?

Well Greg, what do they look like? Tyloto- and Parameso- tritons actually are quite different in appearance. A new wave of Tylototritons at fairly cheap prices has hit the market as I have heard, so price is not really a distinguishing characteristic trait for either genus

Greg they were paramesotriton.I know they were not tylototriton or I would've bought a few.That guy did have some nice caudates though.Did you pick up any of the amphiumas or caecilians?

I did not get any of the Siren or Amphiuma. This same vendor had Penninsula newts and A. mexicanum and that's all for Caudates. Maybe you saw different newts?

the only other Caudates I saw at the show were the typical Salamandra and the Siren intermedia and Amphiuma.... it is strange how these "suddenly" hit the expo market.

Did I miss some?

Let's assume Paramesotriton (as was my gut anyway...). of the species of this genus, what enters the trade in the U.S.? I'll try to get some shots of them this weekend and post.

He had nice adult P. waltl and yes he had many axolotls.He also had a tank crammed with Cynops.He may have had more but I was talking with him before the show opened so he could have put more on display later once it opened to the public.I don't remember seeing any sirens, just amphiumas.And the guy with the eletric eels,lungfish,etc. had a tank full of aquatic caecilians.Not really suddenly, I've seen full grown amphiumas there before and I'm sure I've seen sirens.There were not as many salamandra as usual.If you were referring to the baby CB salamandra those were mine BTW. =)Oh and when I was talking to the caudate vender we were discussing the "croc newts" and he said they were paramesotriton too.As for the species that make it into the U.S. market I have no idea.

All of the known Paramesotriton species enter the US trade, including a few "unidentified" Paramesotritons...one of which I feel is deloustali.

One caveat: P. laoensis/Laotriton does not

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated

    Hi...I used to have a Doctor Fish business...I closed about 3 years ago, but still have lots of big, chunky filtration rocks (lava) how could I clean a few of these to use with my Lottie, please? Would they help or hinder overall tank health? don't want to cause her any problems...love my girl to bits!! many thanks in advance. xx
