I should be able to get it at work in the next couple of weeks (it has to circulate through the curators before we lowly keepers get to see it).
I'm interested in checking it out.

I have put a link to the caecilian article in the current issue of the Herpetological Bulletin at the bottom of my yahoo profile.

Don't spread it round though as the copyright belongs to the BHS not me!

Sorry some kind of yahoo problem. Have put the article on one of my website pages

http://www.ecologyuk.net/

Will get Peter Stafford's (Ed Herpetological Bulletin) leave retrospectively, if he objects I will have to remove it.

Hope this helps.

That link is nearly three years old, I'm sure Richard has removed the article since then. Pay attention to post dates.

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, this is my first time chatting. Anyways, My axolotl (Archie) has been taking chunks out of his tail and I don't know why. He is a healthy weight and is in a 20g tank. Water parameters are 15 Nitrate, 0 Nitrite, 0 ammonia, 7.6 PH. plss Help.

  • Albi_the_axolotlt:
    Oh no poor Archie, I have a suggestion so this usually happens when axolotls are freaked by something like light or noise. But if anything I would need to see pictures. But try to keep the light down water temp 16-20 C is OK and also create as little stress as possible if it doesn't get better I would really recommend a vet trip or advice from a specialist. This can be very serious or no so serious. keep us updated and if you can pics would help. Get better Archie!:giggle:
