| | Questions about becoming aquatic.
So iīve been trying to find as much information about this as i could find and the result was....limited. I was told the transition from eft to aquatic adult is quite the challenge with N.viridescens. The experience iīve heard was with WC animals, which apparently suffered a high mortality rate when transitioning to the aquatic phase.
I have a few questions about this, the most important one being when should they be given the opportunity to choose to be aquatic? what size/age?? I have a large juvenile, meassuring over 7cm long. I have no intention of trying to get it to be aquatic, but iīm VERY curious as to when in the future would be a good and safe time to do so.
Also, is it common to have problems with this newts and their natural transsition to adult life??? Or is it just a problem us europeans have with WC imports?
Whatīs the best way to introduce them to water? Shallow water, and slowly increasing depth technique?
I havenīt been able to find virtually any info on this issue, so any help will be apreciated :)
