Warty Newts (Paramesotriton & Laotriton) & Paddletail Newts (Pachytriton Often sold incorrectly as Japanese fire-bellied newts, these territorial newts are distinct from other genera and very interesting in their own right.

Ah, looks like the survivors are catching up, compared to last time I saw them. Looking great! How long before you can put them back in the water?

I'm planning to keep them aquatic in spring 2018, maybe the end of 2017. I really don't want to rush things though, so I will start with one animal.

All 7 are doing well. The difference in size between the Gersfeld animals and the survivors is almost completely gone. I'm keeping the survivors a little bit warmer in our living room though, so that could explain the catching up. I'm only allowed to have one setup there... All other Laoensis and Paramesotriton experience temps between 15 (night) and 20 (day), so they are kept a little colder than recommended. Still all look well fed and healthy.

The "compost in a can" method seems to be working great in any case. Check that round belly:

Because of winter I have to use dried oak or beech leaves, but they do the trick just as well. I have to keep in mind that the enclosure needs to be moistened more often of course.

Looks great! I like your feeder method to keep them out of the gunky soil. The most wonderful time of the year(8)

Temperatures are getting warmer. I must admit that during winter time I'm keeping the juveniles a bit on the cold side (15-18C). Now it's getting >20C I see that the juveniles are eating more and that they grow faster. It seems that the method I'm using now is good enough for these guys and the Paramesotriton species I'm raising. Still I have to get them aquatic eventually to see if it works properly.
