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.

    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
