This very useful tool is now available on the web:http://www.globalamphibians.org/index.html
The Global Amphibian Assessment (GAA) is the first-ever comprehensive assessment of the conservation status of the world's 5,743 known species of frogs, toads, salamanders, and caecilians. This website presents results of the assessments, including IUCN Red List threat category, range map, ecology information, and other data for every amphibian species.

Search the GAA database for species by name, taxonomy, country, region, habitat type, threat type, or IUCN Red List status.

Hi Mike,
I got that address from Herpdigest. I was playing with the site a little yesterday. It's pretty nice. Using this site and the CITES site should give us some good info on subjects people are always speculating about. It will help us to understand what animals are under the biggest threat. The CITES site will give a little more info on restrictions.

Hi Mike,
Yes agreed, these two sites combined with the various organizations from the Links section are a mine of information.
I too got this info from Herpdigest, and committed the cardinal sin of not crediting the source: Al Saltzberg,.... it was 02:55 after all when I posted, and I may have been a little bit under the affluence of incahol.
It is Xmas after all, or is it New Year?.....I forget.

Honest ociffer I'm not under the alfluence of incahol though many thinkle peep I am. We used to say that back in the day. Now I'm a tea toteler.

I enjoy Herpdigest. Now I have to decide if I'm going to pay for it or not.

Wow, never knew that people ate Cynops orientalis orientalis in china! There's not that much animal to eat.

Well Mike I'm in that quandary too.....Al promises more information, and news as it breaks, so improving the weekly bulletins.
I think that I shall subscribe to the new service, or better still perhaps you will, and forward the contents on to me.

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)

  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)
