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.

Hi everyone!
Earlier this year l lost my female Paramesotriton caudopunctatus. l had her for almost



twenty two years. l obtained her as part of a group,all females,along with some what was to later become Pachytriton C and now Paramesotriton ermizhaoi. l managed to get a male Paramesotriton caudopunctatus many years later,but he also died earlier this year,both had been off their food for some time.

Sorry friends but my computer skills are none too good, so what follows here should be part of my main thread. l continue. The newts l mention above Paramesotriton caudopunctatus would even take food [worms] from my fingers. lt's always sad when you lose an animal/pet,but this old lady l had for such a long time. lt just goes to show longevity in amphibians and when you think from such a tiny egg. l miss them both.
