Ummm...Axolotl have been banned for a while now. It says it quite clearly in the NJ pet shop application form from Fish and Wildlife: http://www.nj.gov/dep/fgw/pdf/xotic_petshop_app.pdf

Granted this information on bans of specific species should be available on exotic hobby permit forms as well but that's not the point. According to Fish and Wildlife, they banned the axolotl and other similar amphibians due to fear that they may interbreed with local native species like the eastern tiger salamander.

Sorry if it seems I was speaking in present tense, I am fully aware it has been quite some time that they banned them.
I was just ranting about it in general, because I want to own one so bad! And I think their reasoning behind the ban is RIDICULOUS.
I think this was the right place to do vent about that? correct me if I am wrong!

Questions on New Jersey

Hi:

I'm a reptile hobbyist living in NYS, and I'm also a science teacher in NYS.

I do some professional development in New Jersey with some teachers. One idea was that I can bring in some of my reptiles for show to middle school classrooms in their ecology and animal units. Its strictly for show and tell, no experimentation.

I assume that I would need a permit?

I will contact NJDEP this week, but wondered if anyone here can give me some insider info.

Annie
