Default Keeping Marbled Newts outdoors

Hi,
I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with keeping Marbled Newts in outdoor enclosures throughout the year in the UK ?

I've kept and bred them before but always over-wintered them at 7-10 C.

Many thanks

Damian

In the Netherlands there's at least one guy who has an outdoor enclosure, where they stay throughout the year. Good breeding results.

I have kept marbled newts outside for the last 20years, they are very similar to great crested newts ,and will interbreed. I live in Macclesfield (Manchester area ), the main problem with the UK is the winter's are not consistently cold ,and as we know they probably use body fat which can kill them. I think mine hibernate under sheds ,in walls ect. Hope this is of some help. Martin

Many thanks to Niels and Martin for your replies.

I might have to give it a go with these in an outdoor enclosure.

I'm hoping to start constructing one shortly.

Cheers

Damian
