If you import Caudata amphibians such as newts and salamanders (including axolotls), then please ensure you are up to date with the latest rules, which  seek to stop the spread of the fungal pathogen, Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal). We would urge anyone involved in the import, export or sale of Caudata species to familiarise themselves with the rules and ensure any animals they buy and sell conform to these.
