Japanese_Fire-Bellied_Newt_(Cynops_pyrrhogaster)_(3149749632)

The Animal Store is no longer selling Fire-bellied Newts at this time. A fungal infection known as Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans has infiltrated the supply chain, and this fungus represents a significant threat to the entire native amphibian population of North America. We need to be responsible custodians. Until and unless we can be sure that the fungus has been halted, we won’t be selling Fire-bellied Newts.
