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.

Default Can someone tell me if this is a female Paddletail?

Hi there,

I've got someone who wants to rehome their male paddletail and I am thinking of taking him as I already own a paddletail but we both want to make sure they are both of different sexes. His has bred before but his female died,
Pretty sure ours is a female but can anyone clarify?

Please see the pictures

Many thanks

I would say probably a female Pachytriton granulosus. Species can be very hard to ID, and my confidence on gender is generally low.

Almost certainly female. Be prepared to separate them if they don't get along. It might be fine, but you are taking somewhat of a risk putting any two paddletails together.
