Default Re: Belly Color - Genetic? Age? or Nutrition?

Belly color in Cynops is usually associated with diet. Captive bred specimens tend to have light orangish to yellow bellies, while wild animals have red bellies- it is mentioned a little bit here: http://www.caudata.org/cc/species/Cy...ientalis.shtml

Feeding them more probably will not change anything, however, what you feed them may have an effect.
