No reason for them not to be marmoratus. In fact i think they are more likely to be marmoratus.
Without location though you might never know.

Have you contacted the seller to clarify? They look like my little juvenile Triturus marmoratus .

Hello!

Many tanks.

I said they seemed pygmaeus, because of the pattern, and size.

No, I did not contact anyone, they were sold without certainty what species. Was out either through an intermediary, I think. It's wait and see

All the best.

Hi

ok, I admit. newts are mine ...

I do not mean, because I knew you all would criticize me, because it is illegal to keep them in captivity in my country, Portugal.

I think the law is really stupid, because who wants to catch the animals endemic to Portugal in the same gathering, because the control is 0. There is only the law ... And I think even though the law exists, since then preserve the water courses, etc.. But I think that this stupid law exists and then destroy the habitats! I think that's very bad.

However, these marmoratus came from England, I have documents that prove it. But I also know that the papers are useless in the eyes of the law.

I also noted that all the animals I have endemic Portugal
are CB!

And it is so. When I can, I put more pictures of them. I thank you for your understanding, and you are free to comment or criticize.

All the best,

Pedro
