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

    Updated June 24th 2017 to reflect 5 post minimum change to being for posting a new advert only

    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 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.

    Please note that a member must have five (5) posts before the software will let the member post their own advert in the Wanted/For Sale section. There is a time delay of up to one hour after the fifth post before you can post a new ad, so don't post nonsense messages just to get your post count up to post an ad - this will result in the removal of the ad and the nonsense messages. Posting an ad elsewhere in the forum will result in its deletion and a possible infraction for the user.

    Thanks to Abrahm and Jennewt for writing most of this.

Melbourne - Adult Female Axolotl Free To Good Home


New member
I have a copper/tan female adult (approx. 5-6 years old) that I regrettably have to find a new home for. She belonged to my ex boyfriend but he didn't want to take her after we broke up. I have tried my best to care for her for the past year however I'm struggling to stay on top of the feeding & tank cleaning because I'm hardly home. Her frills are so small compared to what they used to be and she's on the skinny side so I'm hoping someone can offer her a great home :(

She is in a 3ft tank by herself with sand substrate. Her diet consists of live earthworms and raw prawns.

Must be able to pick-up from the northern suburbs of Melbourne, AUS

I'm happy to sell the tank, accessories and external filter to anyone who is interested however that isn't a huge priority right now.

I had to set her tank up at my nan’s house as I ran out of time to find her a new home before I moved house. The problem is my nan doesn’t want it to be a permanent arrangement so I still have to find a home for Tequila :(


New member
Have you had any luck finding a home? I would take her but I'm in Sydney and I'd be afraid of shipping her since she looks a little skinny.
You could contact some small fish supply stores in your area and see if they would take her. I've seen people rehoming axies on Gumtree too so that's worth looking into if you haven't already.


New member
Hi, did you end up finding her a home.....l could share around if you like?
No I kind of gave up looking for a while but now my nan is really pushing me to get rid of the tank. Do you know anyone in Melbourne who would be interested? Otherwise I'm thinking I might do as Hayleyy mentioned and post an ad on Gumtree

Have you tried the facebook group axolotls down under? There's usually people who can do rescues :)
