• For Sale/Give-Away/Trade Ads for all countries

      Caudata.org was founded to encourage and help people breed newts and salamanders in captivity. As a result we feel very strongly about the sale of wild-caught animals and we do not allow this practice. All for sale advertisements must be for captive bred animals. Animals that are wild-caught but are "long-term" captives can be given away. We may allow long-term captive animals to be traded, strictly at the moderators' discretion (if you have a track record/we know of you and your practices, we are more likely to approve such an advertisement).

    Commercial sellers will only be allowed to advertise on Caudata.org if they sell captive bred animals only and we also ask that you don't link your website (or any other commercial website) unless you are a captive-bred only establishment. As a commercial seller, if you do not think you meet the criteria but are unsure, please contact us.

    For everyone, private or commercial, the general criteria for approving ads are as follows:

    For Sale or Trade (amphibians):

    - Captive Bred (CB) only (must say so).
    - Must state quantity of animals available.
    - Must state age or source of animals (did you breed them or buy them?).
    - Must state price.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.
    - Must be for animals currently available (not orders for future animals).


    Free to good home:

    - Captive Bred (CB) or Long-Term Captive (LTC).
    - A history of the animals would be helpful.
    - No protected species unless you can provide permits or legal papers where such things apply.


    For Sale or trade (supplies, feeders, etc.):

    - Anything goes, within reason.


    Ads are often placed without the complete info above. This will delay the approval of your ad by the moderators, or it could result in it being removed completely.

    Users who have not complied with our forum rules (linked at the bottom of every page) will not have their ads approved. We pay special attention to whether or not you have filled the real name field and whether your country flag is listed in your profile. Also, if you have any unresolved warning or infraction, your ad will not be approved.

    Thanks to Abrahm and Jennewt for writing most of this.

any pictures? Re: Fall newts available

Hi,

Sure, let me know. bisvan@gmail.com

I just googled that amazing Alpine newt. I am interested since I am building a new vivarium. So far, I have kaiser and spanish newts. I am going to build a salamander room like some champ, Patrick, I know on this website. Feel free to email me or post a picture here if you like.

Do you have evidence that those are captive bred adult eastern red spotted newts and not just seasonally collected like every other red spotted newt on the market?

I agree. I find this advert highly suspect and I'm not sure how it got through.

I’m a local who purchased alpine newts from Methos about two years ago. I’ve been inside his home and have seen his setups and newts. I know he takes great care of his newts, and has solid adult stock of everything he advertises here. I’ve seen the adult redspotted newts myself.

Hey A.J. It's Bradley Wilson here. You know for a fact that I bred and raised a bunch of these this year.

I have also seen Bradley's facility, his collection, and the newts in question; and, I agree that these are captive bred newts. Bradley doesn't anywhere near the range of the Eastern Red-spotted newt, and he really isn't the sort of guy who would drive 1000 miles each way to collect $200 worth of newts to sell.

Vouch for the guy Re: Fall newts available

Hi,

I just wanted to vouch for the guy on his ability to captive breed newts. He has a a Facebook page called Triton newts. He is a true "newt-ologist."

I jumped the gun and made judgments without looking deep enough. I'm not active enough on here but upon looking through the the forum it's clear that Menthos is an honest and productive newt breeder. My apologies.
