Thanks to Jake for informing me about the risk of poachers when asking for good herping locations!

I’ve been wanting to go herping for a while, any ideas of where to go? I’m looking to herp for snakes and newts!
I’ve fallen down the trap of a post like this... once. I was confised by the dead thread so I did some reading on the threads related to this topic. And this is what I found... (in summary)

please don’t share location of you herping treks,even giving The county and state is enough to narrow down to exact location at sometimes. This is a worry because poachers could be given a location to collect rare specimens and wipe tho population. It’s is not to be ignorant to your request but in protection of the location.

I know your not a poacher, along with most people on this site. But these are public forums. DMs areOK just not recommended unless you are sure about the person.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
