Default Water caecilians

We are very lucky to get second litter of Typhlonectes natans this autumn. Last year 3 babies were born and this year we got 5 more. So we have a group of 12 amphibians by now.
And a month ago 4 babies T.compressicauda were successfully delivered from Germany to Moscow.
A group of adults have been also kept and successfully bred in Moscow Zoo for several years.
Hope we can keep these animals.

Beautiful creatures! Congratulations!
I very much hope to keep T.natans in the future (far away future im afraid), they are trully fascinating. Any shots of the newborns with the humongous gills still attached? They are one of the weirdest things ive seen xD
Congratulations again, its lovely to see caecilians being bred in captivity more and more.
