Default Pseudotriton ruber breeding success!

Currently there are 2 females laying eggs and guarding their nests. They've laid under large rocks and attack any other Red Salamander that comes close to their eggs. I've noticed they like to stir up the water under their nests to cause a current or flow to help oxygenate their eggs.

I'm amazed at the size of the eggs. The egg its self is large with a big yolk. There's very little space between the yolk and the outer egg membrane. The eggs are almost exactly half a centimeter and laid very close to each other. Wish me luck people!
