You should post more updates on your pyrrho family!
The other week, on seeing mine a friend asked me if they were "rare". It got me thinking and I guess they are pretty rare, in captivity anyway. Even on this forum there aren't that many recent threads about them, I wouldn't be surprised if there are more Kaiser newts in the UK than there are pyrrhos.

These little lovelies sit in a Walstad style tank beside me on the sofa( on a table). I got my first little group from the lovely Eva (Evut) in 2011. These have funnily enough increased over the years, generally coinciding with a visit from Eva. I also have a few from Rodrigo (Azhael) as well. These do breed, but I've never been quick enough to pull the eggs before the egg munchers strike.

Yep they sure know how to get your attention!
My group of C. p sasayama has grown from three to eight. Every year I swear I'm not keeping any more of their offspring, but I can't help it, I've just turned one of my 2015 babies loose in the adult tank. I think it's mum is showing it the ropes and where the worms come from. :)

Do the juveniles stay aquatic post metamorphose? Or is it usual wet kitchenroll malarkey ? I'm assuming they relish fruit flies and hatchling crickets?

I've never raised any from eggs....as soon as any are laid there is a queue of adults preying on the eggs. I have looked after some of Eva's (Evut) juveniles that have a terrestrial stage first, these then need coaxing back into water.

The strain that I have are very hydrophobic after they morph. I've tried forcing them to stay in the water and it seems very hard on them, the odd one will submerge, but generally they just cling to the glass for weeks on end. If you give them a stint on land and bulk them up with worms etc they will usually go back to the water fairly willingly after about 8 months or so.

No eggs yet this year, but the males are stunning! This one is from the first group I raised from eggs in 2013, I don't know why he turned out spotty when his parents were both plain brown, I just love the variation in this species!
