A couple of weeks ago I was getting some C. cyanurus eggs ready to ship out to other people and apparently I had left one in the tub too long and it had hatched out. It's been a while since I raised anything from this stage. My microworm culture has gone bad and I didn't really have the time to raise one baby with a big brine shrimp setup. So, I put it in container where I store extra aquatic plants during breeding season. I figured maybe it'd have a chance to get a little bigger and I can feed it the foods I do have at the moment. Much to my surprise I found it yesterday, with all 4 legs, soon big enough for blackworms.
I guess there were a few more microorganisms in the container than I had realized
(note that I do not encourage anyone to try this with their eggs, there are many better and more effective ways to raise newt larvae as outlined in caudata culture)

What a trooper! I love it when larvae raise themselves like this. I have one M. a. apuanus that somehow managed to raise itself in the parent's tank - together with 11 adults. I would say to throw some blackworms in for that larva, if you haven't already. It looks big enough, and can chew off the ends if they are still a bit too large.
