Default Please Post Pictures Of Your Gravid Newts!

Hi all,

If you have a picture of your gravid female, want to post it? I want to know what it looks like so that I can know when/if my newts/sals get gravid. I don't care when they were taken, past or present, doesn't matter.

Thanks! -Seth

Thanks! Looks just like a fat newt, I hope there is some other way to tell, shape maybe. If you can get another picture some time that would be great! But it is a great start to my venture, I am going to study that one for a while..................

Thanks! I am starting to see a trend i think.....extremely large, but not the same as fat, a bit of a different shape. And wide all the way up, not just in the lower region. Keep the pictures coming!

Wink Re: Please Post Pictures Of Your Gravid Newts!

Very interesting. The first female is a different shape than the second two. So, I guess it depends on the species I bit. But the one on the bottom in the second pic is very interesting. It is wide all the way up, no pear shape, just fat looking all the way up. Very interesting, interesting indeed....................

Pear shape is more visible when a gravid female is not right after feeding. I don't see anything special about it, they're normal-looking well-fed gravid newt females.

That's a better example than my picture, you can see that the rest of her body is a normal healthy size, it's just the abdominal area that's swollen with eggs. A newt that's just overweight and not gravid would be fat all over!

I was just trying to be silly, I don't actually see a trend really......except being huge!
