I am new. I have just lost my pet newt (actually my 8 year old child newt) I am absolutely devastated. He escaped out of his tank (lid not on properly). I found him after two days dead . When I bought him he was sold as a "dog faced newt", having looked at photos on the Internet I think he was a Pachytriton labiatus only black not brown. We have just lost a member of the family and I don't want to tell my daughter that her pet is dead too. when I tried the pet shop I got him from I was told that he was very rare and they could not get any more as the batch he came in was a mistake from their supplier in China. Can any body help me locate an other stardog for me as my daughter is going to flip if she sees he has gone. I live in Glasgow but would be happy to go to hell and back to get out of this mess.
