Hi,

My female newt gave birth to 15 eggs about 4-5 weeks ago. They were growing and everything and none of them looking white or anything. It's now been this long and they are still brown solid circles and very large - but they haven't hatched yet. Is this normal? I htought they took only 2 weeks to hatch. The eggs look healthy and have no white milky stuff on them. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Greg

Depends upon the species. What species are your newts?

Try to give us as much information as possible. Say, how about the temperature?

The one that gave birth is (i think) one of those worty newts with an organge belly. (looks like a crocodile newt). The water temperature is about 20C. I don't know what else you want to know. The water level is about 2-3inches. They have many plants and a large rock that they are able to hide under, and they have a hollowed out log to hang out in.

Sounds like the eggs are just taking a long time to hatch. Newt eggs are pretty slow. Do they look like the eggs on these pages:

They look more like the Paramesotriton hongkongensis kind.
