Sexing Tylototriton taliangensis
Are Tylototriton taliangensis more difficult to sex than other Tylototriton? I just got a bunch of T. taliangensis and am having a tough time figuring out their sexes. I also got some new T. shanjing and T. kweichowensis and they seem to be easier to sex.

Turn them over, hold the newt such that you can use one hand to separate the lips of the cloaca. Males will have a longer slit than females (it helps to compare a few animals).

I should say, Max Sparreboom taught me that in 2000.

Re: Sexing Tylototriton taliangensis
Iíve found this also ,that Taliangensis are harder to sex ,Untill the male is fully mature and then has orange pads on his arms for amplexus , Iím still touch and go on my 3 animals as to whether I have 3 males or 2 males 1 female. Maybe I am too impatient.
