Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Default Triturus dobrogicus sexing

Can't tell wether this nearly 3-month old Dobrogicus is male or female. It has a slightly swollen cloaca but doesn't differ a lot from the females, and his head is slightly more shaped like that of a male.

Can anyone help me out and maybe post some pics of animals at a similar age?

thank you and sorry for poor picture quality,

Joop

Your pics didn't upload, could you try this way? The site can host your pics without having external links, that way the pics are always visible, even in very old threads. :)

In my experience it's hard to tell the gender at this stage, unless there's an obvious crest or eggs are layed. Dorsal lining or the colour of the tale doesn't guarantee anything. I've had an animal which looked like a female, until it developed a crest after three years. I've had a specimen with a swollen cloaca which had to be a male for sure, which started to lay eggs.
