I've never kept Pleurodeles but I'm always tempted when I see them. I saw some at a friend's house a few years ago and couldn't believe the size of them, they were like crocodiles!

Yes, the fully grown adults I have mesure about 20-22 cm but this species can probably grow more in big tanks.
The animals of this photo are young (born in spring 2016) and are only 15 cm long.
I have had this species for 17 years and It still interests me.
