Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Default Alpine Apuana rebuild

Today I moved my group of apuanas from a 10 gal to a 15 long. They hatched last April and are pretty much adults now/ need a little extra space to fill out and hopefully breed this winter. I also noticed one of them has a growth defect in its skull, it didn't develop properly(last pic). It has a lot of character and moves/ eats fine, but I will likely exclude it from the group during breeding season.

Default Re: Alpine Apuana rebuild

These guys have grown quite a bit since my last post and are now getting ready for their first breeding season. I have a group of 6, I left 4 in their tank to cool with the rest of my newts and also put a pair in the garage to cool for about 2months (fluctuated between 1C and 6C). I just took the pair inside and have them re adjusting to room temperature (about 10 degrees from 6 in the garage) and then will move them to a room that is around 14-16 to replicate the natural transition/ prevent temperature shock as they are quite sluggish and moving slowly. The remaining 4 have been eating quite a bit and are in my ‘Newt room’, which is currently floating between 8-12 degrees C. Hoping for some eggs this year if all goes well.
