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

That is definitely awesome; the full gills are pretty impressive. Thanks for sharing!

I have to ask- does he go into breeding condition?

A great specimen James, thanks for sharing.
Do you know how old he is?

That's great James! Did it undergo the colour change to orange like an eft, or automatically get adult colouration?

Is this one you've raised yourself? It's very impressive!

He went straight to the adult colour and I did raise him from an egg

That is very neat James.:) Do you have any future plans to breed him?

James, this is exciting! I enjoy seeing NVL's posted, as they aren't that popular. Thanks for sharing.

How many do you keep?

That is very interesting. I suspect that neotony in NVL is population specific as it is with some tiger sal populations? Have you observed neotony in the population where you collected the eggs?
