Default Pseudotriton ruber

Here are a few of the Pseudotriton ruber in my collection. This is one of the only times I've seen this many out and about so I decided to take a video. It's during feeding time (note the chopped worms). Pay no attention to the ending, I tried to get the Lissotriton vulgaris tank in there, but they're difficult to see.



Sorry for my consistently poor video quality, but I've noticed a lack of videos being posted.

Wow, I thought they were terrestrial. Do they ever come out of the water?

Great video. I have the same question as Dawn. Do they remain aquatic all year or is this just seasonal, and have you had any breeding success?

During the warmer months they were mostly terrestrial, but since it's cooled down quite a bit I often find them hiding under rocks at the botton of the water area of the tank.

I have not had any breeding success with this species, but hope to one day.

I recently moved this group from a 55 gallon to a 75 gallon tank on the floor near the window. It's considerably colder there. I've been noticing increaced activity since the move, much more than in the summer months. Here are a few more videos of them in their new enclosure.

Is that the kind of music do you normally listen to? I find the music of your videos to be very funny indeed :)

Cracking animales too! Ive always liked this species, it definitely looks like a very interesting and beautiful animal to keep. Lets hope that increase of activity leads to breeding, it would be brilliant.

I have to say Jacob, the more I look at your setup the more I like it. I think that I am definitely going to have to try this setup. Are the stacked rocks secured with anything, or do they just balance like that? Gorgeous setup, keep the videos coming, and i've got my fingers crossed for some breeding.

Alex

Yes, that is the music I always listen to. I leave it on all the time in the newt room.

The rocks are not secured with anything, but they're sturdy enough that even if all 10 were to push their weight on them they wouldn't fall. There is also no need to worry about the tank/stand getting bumped because it weighs too much and is on the floor.

Jacob,
Thanks very much for the videos and info. I'm not in touch with anyone who has bred them...a friend who kept black-chinned red salalmanders, P. r. schencki found that they remained active at 40 F and showed some breeeding behavior the year after being chilled, so I think quite a chill might be needed to stimulate yours.

Just as an aside, I have 1 of my friend's black chins, which is now 25-28 years old. My friend, Bob Holland, passed away about 10 years ago. In the 60's-70's he was keeping and breeding all sorts of odd, ignored little creatures, long before most zoos were able, many still not give much attention..had dart frogs in their teens, Cuban and banded tree snails, unusual mosses and ferns, and so on. He would have been so pleasantly surprised by the interest and fine information generated by this site. Best, Frank.

I plan to give them quite a chill! Last year I kept the window in the caudate room open during the winter and the temps stayed around 40 degrees for about two months. The lowest the air temp got was 36 degrees for a few days. The tanks nearest the window froze over a few times during the coldest part of winter. I plan to let the water in their tank freeze over, hopefully that'll be enough encouragement for them.

I love being able to see them animals moving. It gives so much more information than static images you just do not know how an animal moves. And they can be stunning.

These Pseudotriton are great.
