• 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.

Need a pair quick!

Hello everyone, I have been reading up on Axolotls and found your site. This is probably the wrong place to post, but I need some help. I am looking for a pair of Axolotls, preferably a "wild" and an Albino. I have looked in your forum and contacted 2 different members but I have not heard back. I have to assume they don't have any for sale right now. Now I am getting desperate. I can assure you they will be in good hands!! I am trying to get a pair for my Daughter for her 10th Birthday. I know that seems a little young, but she is studying to be a pet fosterer/vet. She has had this dream since she was little and reads adult animal care books daily. She just got promoted up to the gifted children program and I want to do everything I can to keep her sincere interest in animals going. She loves to care for all animals, but she has fallen in love with 2 odd animals, Axolotls and Sphinx cats. Since a Sphinx is way to expensive, I decided to go for the Axls'. Does anyone have a pair (M-F) they would be willing to sell us, her birthday is coming up and I can't locate them anywhere local. We live in Ohio and I would need them by the end of the month. If you have a pair, let me know how much with shipping ASAP.
Thanks for your time!

There are a couple of unlikelihoods with what you are asking for. First, axolotls breed in winter/spring, so it's going to be tough to find any available right now. The other problem is that they usually have to be shipped, and it's a lot easier to ship juveniles than adults... and juveniles usually cannot be sexed yet. It would be very rare to find someone that would ship you a sexed pair, it's just not a very likely thing. But who knows, you might get lucky and find someone locally that has some.

Well...

The sexing isn't a big deal, I just thought it might be a good way to learn about the life cycle down the road. Obviously safe shipping is a concern, but I would be happy with any size. Anyone?

Thanks again!

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
