Thanks for the nice comment, Opacum.

My last larva climbed on land on the 17th January, making it exactly 6 months between the first one hatching and the last one morphing. At around the same time, one of the females started laying eggs again.

I have moved all but the smallest two newtlets into shallow semi aquatic set ups. They don't seem scared of the water and sometimes they look like they are trying to get used to it - the biggest ones try to submerge themselves. Even the smallest ones can often be seen sitting in the shallow parts.

Some newer pictures:

All of them look very nice! And particularly the one with so much orange, beautiful colours and pattern.

Nice pics Eva. Really good to see. How big yours morphed? The look like have been grown to big larvae! If not an inconvenience what you were/are feeding them? Both larvae and juvies? Cheers,

Thanks! The bright orange newtlet was my first morph and is quite strange - it has only one tiny black dot on the belly, otherwise it's just orange. Very cute

Jorge, they didn't grow as big as larvae as I hoped - if I remember correctly the bigger ones morphed at about 3.5cm, maybe a bit bigger. But all the morphs have done well so far. I have 2 newtlets who are really quite fat.
Regarding food, the larvae were fed brine shrimps and then some defrosted blood worms when they were bigger. Juvies are getting chopped earthworm and lesser wax worms.

It's indeed a wonderfull specimen. Although keep in mind that it's colour can change during it's trip to adulthood. Probably the dorsolateral stripes will fade away , and even black spots can appear (or fade away) on it's belly. But it's definately a juvie I would keep.

They are cuteness caudatified!
Nice color too, youŽve been feeding them well xD

I have a juvenile with a simingly aberrant belly too, but iŽm pretty sure individuals like that end up changing dramatically when they reach maturity like Joost said. Females in particular seem to add a lot more black when they mature.

Eva. I am in love with your pics/animals. They are such awesome pics! If you don't mind what lenses or camera are you using for it? Just a small curiosity

The underneath ones youŽre using clean glass?

Thank you Ken! I am very proud - these are the first newtlets for me and Matsuko, the bright orange one is the first one of them

Jorge, unfortunately I don't have any glass for these shots so I just used a plastic box (a kind of tall one for storing cereals) and stuck the newts to the wall and a sheet of white paper behind...not the best method. I must get some glass for this, it would be easier.
My camera is just a Panasonic FZ50 and this took a lot of time in Photoshop (mainly because I am not particularly good with it ).

Really nice photos! Thank you for sharing. I love the match stick comparison. Great idea! Once they come onto land are you feeding them fruit flies? Spring tails? Blackworms? Also, what's the red rock? It looks like they enjoy it. Thanks again!

They had some fruiflies and micro crickets at first but I feed them mainly chopped small earthworms which are accepted well and lesser waxworms. I am also going to try offering defrosted bloodworms now.

Or maybe you meant the terracotta saucer - they are quite good because they soak up some water and stay moist.

Hi Eva,
how long before your eggs showed any development?

I have 12 pyrrh eggs; the oldest are about 6 days old and they still look round and smooth like ping pong balls - no visible curving or cleaving. But still clear and no fungus. I am hovering over them checking every day. Shouldn't I see little commas by now? I fear they are duds...
