North American Newts (Notophthalmus & Taricha) While not closely related, these two genera are the true newts of North America.

Default Housing Taricha Torosa eggs/larvae outdoors?

Hi guys, so I came across a pretty rare opportunity. I saw some captive bred taricha torosa eggs for sale recently and jumped at the opportunity to get some. I should have them in a couple days.

Just curious... Can the eggs/larvae be housed in tubs outside in a shaded area? I already live in SoCal. I come across them on hikes just a few miles north of me all the time. I'm wondering if keeping them outside would get them closer to their desired temps.

Thanks in advance! And sorry for the possibly stupid question

I am not an expert on housing newts outside but if there native to you area it shouldn't be a problem although someone else would have to tell you how to setup and enclosure for them. I did want to say these are one awesome newt species I first ever saw these as a kid in the movie Matilda! Good luck!
