Default Hynobius retardatus breeding.

Hi,

A few pics of my Hynobius retardatus larvae... found in the pool of their outdoor enclosure.
It's their first breeding, the most part of the "egg bags" wasn't fertile.

Congrats! Great photos as well. Good luck with the offspring!

Just out of curiosity, how many clutches of eggs did you get? -Seth

Nice! Do you have any photos of the enclosure? What sex ratio do you have?

Thanks !

Here's a pic of the enclosure. It's 150 x 65 cm and 60 cm underground.
The "pool" is very tiny, but it seems it's enough for them...

I put 8 subadults inside in 2012, but in this kind of setup I never see them all in the same time.
So I don't know what is the sex-ratio.
I had two clutches this year, so I've at least two females...

It's around 1,5-2 cm diameter ;
I don't know the length, I didn't unroll the clutch to measure it. But I guess it's at least 20 cm (unrolled).

Last year, for their first breeding, clutches was around 1-1,5 cm diameter and 8-10 cm length.
