    Keep trying.

    Make the photo sessions short and frequent. They get used to the camera.

    I've been looking for a CFBN for quite a while. Mine is a JFBN, nearly identical, but still a seperate species (I have a bhabit of collecting things ) Its the only FBN I see in the pet stores, but all the ones in the stores are either too small, diseased, parasite infested, injured, or a combination of these.

    it's really hard to find healthy CBFN, and even harder to find CB. Mine were all WC and i had plans to breed my make and the two females i had. Then......my male decided to go for a walk one day and i found him behind the cricket bin dried and shrivled up. So now my two females have turned lesbian HAHAH! LOL jk

    I know what you mean. I RARELY see any newts of any species in a pet store that are in good condition. I just got lucky when I got Newnewt a few years ago. Plus he's a japanese! They're just harder to find.

    Don't get the wrong idea. My FBNs were farthest from healthy when I got them. I started out with four. These two are the survivors. I bought them from a mixed species tank in the pet store that had baby albino african clawed frogs, fire-bellied toads, and fire bellied newts. Nice combo right I never see Japanese FB newts anywhere in pet stores here. just chinese. kinda funny.

    those ACF's probably had a few good meals with FBN as the main course. Too bad the store probably had many casualties not only of the newts being eaten, but of the frogs that died from being poisoned by the newts! now THAT'S kinda funny.
