Hello everyone I've just finished building a paludarium with a waterfall and have been looking for newts at literally all of the pet stores around me and they tell me newts and salamanders are illegal to import or something like that please excuse my ignorance on this topic but if anyone could give me a few tips on where I could adopt/buy newts or even salamanders I'd greatly appreciate it thank you beautiful people.

Tell me about it. I've been looking in LA for several months now. There will be a reptile convention in Victorville in the end of June. I'll hope to drive out and find something then. Also, there will be the big reptile convention in LA in August. And of course, as Otterwoman said, there's the FS section.

Crazy that there are so few breeders in CA.

Good luck!

Haven't seen really any amphibians besides dart frogs for sale in southern California. The last time I saw one at an LPS was in 2014 or 2015. There was a trade ban where it is illegal to import salamanders. One time I have seen a marbled salamander at the Pomona reptile expo, nice to see also since its illegal to possess I believe in California because it's apart of the Ambystoma family. If you want to see some newts/salamanders I guess you'll just have to travel up north, there's nothing here in Southern California.

    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
