Default Cynops pyrrhogaster juveniles movement

When is it safe to put juveniles into water ?

What age / what length?

They are currently on paper towels.

Juveniles Pyrrho's can be very temperamental when it comes to going aquatic.
With mine, I removed the towels and added about 1 cm of water to their tub, added lots and lots of plants and only offered food in the water, ideally daphnia and small blood worm. Most would happily start to paddle and submerge....some would refuse and would cling to the sides of the tub and avoid water contact. I had one that took so long, that I had to add a cork island...eventually he gave in and now merrily swims with all the others.

Believe it or not, some people have actually had success raising them mostly aquatically. But you must provide lots of plants.

These should help.

So in the future if you have more juveniles/morphs, you could try this. -Seth
