Default Tylototriton verrucosus twins!

I was looking at the eggs my Tylos had laid and noticed one with two embryos! I pulled it out along with a few other eggs to raise so we'll see what happens.
I also noticed some eggs that look like they're all in the same jelly, a bit like Bufo toad eggs, has anyone seen anything like it before?

I once had some Pleurodeles eggs in a continuous jelly string, like the case you describe here for T. verrucosus.
The female was very plump and had not laid for a while before that.

Same here, the females have been gravid for a month or two. I think the crazy weather we're having here in the UK might have set them off, it's been yo-yoing from about 8-22F over the last week!

They both hatched as normal larvae and I lost track which ones they are, I haven't lost any larvae though, so they are certainly still going strong.
Btw, Your animals look very similar to mine, are they descended from the John Clare/Ummi bloodline?

Mine originally came from Michael Shrom, so whereever he got his from. I got them in 2004 or 2005, so it was a while ago.

This is an "egg" from P.deloustali. They both hatched normally.

Forgot to mention these are from Niels D. I copied the picture codes from another forum. He knows about this post of course. He's on a herping trip, but I found these pictures to be very nice to add to this thread, also because I saw the egg myself. Very beautiful if you ask me.

Already back. It turned out to be more of a beer trip because of the weather. We wanted to see the P.muralis in Maastricht (only known Dutch population), but we ... well. Let's say we kept on ordering until our vision wasn't suitable to spot small lizzards anymore.
