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.

Wink Jumping Triturus marmoratus

Hi,

I have bred just a few Triturus marmoratus this year, but they are stunners!
Look at my latest morph! I just love the coloration of this species....

Think i might of bred a jumper,...T.marmoratus "Jumper"

But without joking, isn't it a stunning newt? :)

Thx guys!

Mitch, i do not intend to raise them aquatic.
It just morphed this week so.., soon i will put it in a terestrial set-up.

I think they grow better in such a set-up.
Need to make sure they get enough calcium though.. :)

Excellent animal my friend. I just wonder how you can do that... pasing form larvae to morph always in deep water... Mine morph and run away for the most dry places, and stay there for 2 years ...
Good job!

Thanks all,

Jorgo, i decided to keep one aquatic and one terrestrial, to see which one will be doing better.
It is easy to keep them aquatic i think.

I just fill the tank with 15 to 20cm of water and then put a rock in there that is just underneath the surface of the water. So when they sit on top of the rock, they are with their feed and belly in the water.

Allso i make sure a small pump floods the rock with water, to make sure the rock stays wet and flooded when the waterlevel drops.

I allso put some plants in the ater which they can rest on.
I feed them in the water, the first days they climb the small surfacing pump and the glass but after a few days they chill on the rock and plants and eat in the water, within days they are aquatic like popei

I do this with my Taricha granulosa morphs(2009) too!
I got my Taricha cb from 08 allso aquatic within days after one year of terrestrial raising, with the same method!

Hey there... Ive heard that before with T. verrucosus... Didnt know it could be applied to these, how many centimetres the aquatic one haves? I think Ill do the same with my Taricha granulosa, since they dont feed no bloodworms, no ephemeroptera larvae. In water maybe will acept these better and chopped earthworms (very small), no?

I keep my metamorphosed Cynops orientalis in water.
I put it in a box with 2 inches of water and java moss in order to leave the water. In the early days the larvae remain on the sides of the box, but quickly returned to the water, where they eat frozen bloodworms!

They are very fat =D

All the best
