Pretty sweet stuff AJ! Nothing better than watching newts go full cycle.

Thanks for the update!

Thanks, I hope to breed them this winter too. Actually I know they will breed but I hope to raise larvae, I may not have time though. I may just sell some eggs this winter.

I have some more pics, sorry for posting so many.lol.

Here are some female morphs near the surface. Note the yellow lines on thier backs. Is it normal for dobro morphs to have such yellow lines on thier backs? I love them.
Click the image to open in full size.

Here is a little male. 1 of 3. So far only 3 males out of 13 morphs. Is that normal to have so many females?

Also if anyone wants to trade some popei for dobrogicus, give me a pm. I would prefer aquatic popei or some that are close to going aquatic.

Yes, it's normal to only be able to sex out a few males at first. I'm sure some that look like females right now are actually males, just difficult to tell right now. Very nice looking animals.

Default Re: Triturus Dobrogicus Larvae

If you are using the yellow stripe as a sign of gender....youīre very much mistaken.
My two juveniles are male and female, and itīs the male who has the yellow stripe.

And yes, itīs perfectly normal. You seem to have a rather large percentage of animals with the stripe so itīs possible your dobrogicus come from a bloodline that was contaminated at some point with T.carnifex...it happens.

Default Re: Triturus Dobrogicus Larvae

It is very interesting idea Azhael and would definitely explain the well defined yellow strip down the back along with the large volume of white dots.

While sexing these dobrogicus based on the yellow line is not by any means 100% accurate, knowing that the yellow line shows up predominately more in females than males, (especially in carnifex) this would be an educated assumption. Will all of the dobros with the
large yellow stripes be female, probably not but I’d be willing to bet the majority will be.
Beautiful newts AJ, I would be very proud of these guys! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Mitch

Default Re: Triturus Dobrogicus Larvae

The fact that it predominates in females in the case of T.carnifex doesnīt mean it works the same way in other Triturus species.
To me the yellow stripe is linked to a particular coloration, specially rich in iridophores, not to sex, but then again my experience is limited.

I now have a sex ratio of 6:7. The females have the yellow stripes and the males have crests. The parents don't have yellow stripes so they may fade and look like the parents eventually. It is gorgeous though.

I agree it looks great. It will fade away as soon as they mature. It will become an orangy/brownish colour in the females.

About the yellow stripe, only some females have it. I made a new setup for the 13 small morphs because of feeding frenzies. One little newt lost a back leg. I was crushed! I instantly gave them a bigger cage with more plants to hide and rest in. Here are some pics.

Here is the new setup.

Here are some more of the morphs:

One of the male morph's crest is growing more and more slowly. I am wondering if he is going to get in breeding condition soon. He is a larger morph(4-4.5 inches) so I guess he could. I doubt it though. The parents bred successfully when they were 10-13 months old. I didnt try to breed them. He is 4-5 months old so he is definately to young.

I mentioned the male morph with a crest, well it is growing still! He is one of the large morphs and I keep a close eye on him. I managed to get two pics of him today. It wasnt very easy though.

Yes, one way or another. I will most likely sell them in bulk though. I dont know if people would buy them from me because I have not built up reputation and popularity as a person who sells newts like other people on this site.

Nice shots AJ, that is getting quite big for a young little guy! I also think it is interesting to see that the tail shows the white sheen similar to that of the breeding dress.
