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.

The biggest of the bunch were larvae I didn't notice in the parent tank for a couple weeks. Once I pulled them out and was able to feed them as much as they would take they grow a lot faster. Some of them are getting close to morphing now, I am excited for the next few days these are my first offspring from breeding my own animals (have raised a lot of larvae from eggs before but not my own).

I removed one that looked to be morphing and put it into a smaller tank to take a few pictures. Once the color starts it really comes in fast. It's hard to tell which will be wild type or not. I love the contrast of the yellow on the black, the wild type will always be my favorite.

Still waiting on my first morph. Moving them into a larger bin with more room and deeper water seems to have encouraged them to stay in a little longer. They seem to grow a lot faster as larvae so no complaints!

The first carnifex metamorphed yesterday followed by a couple more today. I just added some driftwood to their enclosure yesterday so I'm not sure if they were ready before that but didn't seem to be climbing or expressing discomfort. They are on a bin on my basement floor which I think has kept the water cool/ hasn't really encouraged them to morph too early.

More of these have morphed in the last few days, the first few are getting big. I also have a couple monster larvae that are almost 5 inches (last pic).
