eMax - I'm not sure of the official reasoning behind the change. But given that they aren't edible, have a very limited range and are generally uncommon (unless you know where to look during breeding season) I'd say its a law that makes sense.

It is both unfortunate and likely a positive for the species long term numbers that this basically ends their legal collection. T. torosa was added to the no-take list several years ago as well. Hopefully Dawn and the few others on this board who keep/breed T. rivularis will have some available in the future. I would have liked to work with this species but given I live in CA again and the recent reg change that unfortunately won't be happening.

If I can get them to breed in significant numbers of course they will be available. Maybe if everyone wishes them luck....

I guess I'll just have to wish otterwoman and her newts plenty of luck! :)

Thanks for that additional info Perry. It does indeed make sense for the species, but is unfortunate for those who would like to see the captive broodstock expanded legally.

Very cute newts. I live in Northern California and I have seen many of these newts hanging around our creeks. They seem very terrestrial in my experience. They are always hanging out in streams, so I would think that they would do good with a more powerful flow filter (while over newts dislike them).

My dream tank is a redwood forest themed palladarium with these guys. Lots of redwood sorrel and maybe some redwood saplings. And an old small redwood stump as the center piece.

I keep these in about 3 or 4 inches of water with lots of haul-outs, including soil. Just posting an update. The juveniles have not bred but they are still small. I feed them chopped nightcrawlers in a dish under the water.
Sorry these are crappy cell phone pics. Last count I had three adults and about 10 juveniles.

a few more pics.
They aren't all hanging out on land, some are in the water - you can see one in the water in the previous post by the red hide.

Beautiful! Extremely jealous, that was one of my dream species before I learned that they wouldn't ever be for sale

Rep: BwKilcoyne is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Taricha Rivularis

Hello,
I just found out that the newts I have, which I thought were Taricha granulosa, are actually Taricha rivularis. They seem to avoid the water like the plague, aren't huge eaters (although their weight is stable), and are very shy. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on the care for these newts. I had them in a mostly aquatic setup before, but moved them to a 50-50 sem-aquatic setup. They still act the same way though. Do you have any tips for me?
