This is one of my female alpine newts in her outdoor pond this evening waiting for me to give her a worm. she is looking a bit plump so fingers crossed for some eggs soon.

Hi Killian

So... have you got a garden pond with introduced alpine newts there in Ireland? I'm amazed about the clear colours of this newt ( reminds me to T. alpestris apuanus ). Have you got more pics?

She is in an outdoor vivarium. I am not sure what species she is but I was told she was just of the T.a.alpestris race, but she maybe a hybrid of the species? She was born outdoors and lived outside in Ireland all her life. perhaps it is the natural food and sunlight that has made her so attractive? she was bred by a friend of mine.



this is a male from the same stock. not a great photo but might help with your identification.Click the image to open in full size.

Hi Killian,
Take a look at their throats, if they are spotted it's apuanus.
