There is at least one member of caudata from the uk who keeps these, i wont name directly, but he does breed and donate N. kaiseri, if that helps.

There was an importation into the UK in 2004 but none since then AFAIK. I no longer keep them and I suspect all the originals are probably dead.

I broke down and got a group of 15. This years imports seem to look like a mixed bag of juveniles and adults, mostly juvies so I suspect it will be sometime before CB start showing up regularly.

I have a wild group Melanophryniscus montevidensis 3.3 from two years ago.
They are very easy to care dislike humidity, eat a lot during the morning should be well ventilated. Withstand temperatures from 0 to 35 º C. Drown in 5cm of water ...
Once I got a spawning but the tadpoles were killed by mistake.
A few photos that I keep:

This species lives in areas of dunes near of the ocean. [Site data removed by John - we don't allow the posting of actual collection locations]

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal
