Default Best source or Triturus literature

What book in the English language provides the most information about the natural history/care of Triturus?

For natural history, probably: Newts and Salamanders of Europe, R.A.Griffiths, ISBN 0-85664-100-X, also good information in: The Amphibians of the former Soviet Union, S.L.Kuzmin, ISBN 954-642-045-X.
For care, the Caudata Culture species database. Click the image to open in full size.

What about Amphibians in Captivity by Marc Staniszewski? That is the only other book I'm considering.

Yes Ray, I have his book in my Library, unfortunately I tend relate to TFH publications as good "picture books", which is unfair I think in this case, as it contains sound information.

Thanks for all the info. Someone really needs to sit down and write a good book about newts, especially European newts. It would not have to be a huge volume: maybe something like Chris Mattison's, <u>Keeping and Breeding Lizards</u>.

I was considering getting that book as well. It's less expensive than Staniszewski' book. I enjoyed Mattison's "Keeping and Breeding Lizards" and I still think it's one of the the best general lizard book around. I'd imagine his amphibian book would be good too (I may just have to hunt down a copy and see for myself).

I have a copy of this book. (In fact every herpetological book that Chris has written!) It was first published in 1993, and I don't believe it has been revised. For this reason only, it isn't "cutting edge".

What's it worth in terms of Triturus care?
