Kaiseri are pretty. They are one of my favourite newts to look at as well. A very beautiful pattern and colour.
However, if you were thinking of buying some I'd say wait until there are more captive bred animals available. There are a few people on the forum who keep this species and are trying to breed them. You can read all about it in this part of the forum: http://www.caudata.org/forum/messages/13/330.html?1170854251.
Wild caught adults are expensive and have a very low survival rate.
There was an import of CB kaisers from Europe to the US last year. I think it will be some years until there is sustainable production of this species in the US (if ever). I have avoided them thus far because of their cost and their reputation for sudden inexplicable death
I have it on good authority their should be an import of c.b. N. kaiser this summer to the U.S. They are expensive and some people have problems with them. Some people say they are easy to keep. I wouldn't go that far. I'm giving them a crack and hope to breed them but it probably won't be this year.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
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
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
