• 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.

NO SHIPPING OR RESERVATIONS, NO EXCEPTIONS

I will have the following available on a first come, first served basis for pickup only at NARBC Tinley Park, IL next Saturday and Sunday March 14-15th, just look for some guys behind a pile of amphibians at the Chicago Reptile House Booth. Absolutely no shipping and I will not reserve animals for anyone including you, no matter who you think you are or who you know. This makes it fair for everyone. This is really not the season to look for newts to buy so I don't have very many or much of a variety available and they sell out quickly. Fall is the time to look for newts for sale. VIP passes are available to get you in early during setup, I will not meet you in the parking lot or behind the dumpster, it is against the show rules to sell outside of the venue and I don't plan on breaking the rules for anyone. NO SHIPPING. Don't like the prices? Don't buy the animals.

The following are all around one year old, they are juveniles that either weren't quite ready to go in October or some that I held back. All are being kept mostly aquatic and fed mainly frozen/thawed bloodworms (red midge fly larvae, I know some of you freaks call California blackworms "bloodworms" but they are blackworms, not bloodworms...super freaks!) Most of these will not be big enough to accurately tell the sexes with your eyes.

Lissotriton vulgaris (well started juveniles) $15 each; groups of 5 for $60; groups of 10 for $100, for larger quantities come talk to me at the end of the day Sunday.

Pleurodeles waltl (normal) $20
White $25

Hypselotriton cyanurus $25

Hypselotriton orientalis $25

Neurergus crocatus $40 each; groups of 6 for $200

Neurergus kaiseri $65 *****I'm not bringing many and they normally sell out very fast so don't waste a long trip trying to get them, I would be happy to refer you to several people who have them available for shipping*****

Triturus karelini $25

Axolotls:
2-5" wild type $10 each
Some are het for copper, some het for leucistic, if you are one of the three people on earth who even cares I'd be happy to point out what is what.

2-3"
Leucistic $12
GFP leucistic $15

Copper $15
GFP copper $20

The following are sexually mature proven breeding adults, some actively breeding now but being moved will likely disrupt breeding activity. Will not separate.

Lissotriton vulgaris 1.2 trio $100

Ichthyosaura alpestris apuanus 1.2 trio $100

Triturus dobrogicus 1.1 pair $70

Triturus karelini 1.2 trio $100

Triturus marmoratus 1.2 trio, three years old $225

Assorted adult axolotls $30-60 depending on color and sex



Newt Larvae for Dummies:

These are easy species to raise that literally any dummy can succeed with, just look at me! I don't like selling eggs because you need to count before they hatch, but these are already hatched and many already eating.

Lissotriton vulgaris $10/dozen

Ichthyosaura alpestris apuanus $10 per group of 10



Odds and ends:

Rangen soft moist salmon pellets $5/cup

20 count Orange Head Roaches (Eublaberus posticus) mixed large nymphs/adults $25

Flame moss (starter portion) $5

Naja grass/guppy grass (starter portion) $5

Riccia sp/"crystalwort" (starter poriton) $5


FROGS

Northern Illinois' notorious, wacky Professor Oyler the frog breeder will be set up next to me. He has asked me to post the following for him. You may not see him at the table, but he will see you as he is lurking in the shadows nearby. These were ALL produced locally.

Giant African Bullfrog (Pyxicephalus adspersus)

5 months old, 3 inches long (11 available) $45-55
2 weeks out of the water (~80 available) $12-15


Budgett's Frogs (Lepidobatrachus laevis)
***possible Oyler Scrotum Wing** Extremely rare color morph (see photos of the mother) Some should show the notorious "scrotum wing" coloration at around 1 month post metamorphosis.
Large tadpoles $10-15 each (50 available)

Brazillian horned frogs (Ceratophrys aurita)
1-2" $35-50 (8 available)

Australian earless dragons (Tympanocryptis tetraporophora)
8 month old, sexually mature adult pairs $450/pair

April fools!! The show was cancelled because of some kind of Chinese bat soup flu. I'm still going to be in Tinley Park on Saturday and still have some newts available. Email axolotl_jake@sbcglobal.net with subject line "nudes" so I know you're real.

Hello! Unfortunately I live quite far away from your location of sale, so I cannot purchase the N. kaiseri that you have listed, however you mentioned being able to refer potential buyers to several people who have them available for shipping. If that is still the case, I would be very interested in making an arrangement!

If you look, literally, one forum post above this one you will find someone selling them. Then if you look a few posts down, you can find two more people selling them.

If you go back to the main page of for sale USA one of the top ads was posted by "mroconno", I belive Dan O. has posted in a different ad lower on the list and Michael Shrom may still have some. All of them ship but maybe wait until things calm down to ask anyone to ship live animals.
