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 Marmoratus Breeding Project

I am preparing to breed my marmoratus, and have moved them from their terrestrial setup to a more aquatic setup. They have all been going in and out of the water, the males doing so more regularly from my observations. They are currently being housed in my basement with the window slightly ajar, so they have been cooling for the last two weeks or so, with quite a bit left to go. Will post pictures with updates/as I remove the land portions of their setup over time.

Do you have some pictures about your terrestrial and terrestrial/acquatic set up?
I'm interested on this species and i could be inspired from your "breeding project " .

Here are some photo updates sorry for the delay. I have a male and two females in here. I had slowly been increasing the water level as I noticed their skin change. They dug a cave in to the sand when the water rose which was cool. They are all fairly aquatic now. One female entered the water a few months earlier so she is bigger.

I had seen some tail fanning and courtship attempts when the weather had warmed for a few days, now that it has cooled back down though the male has stopped pursuing the females, is that normal? Good to know he is interested nevertheless, I acquired him through trade (started with 3 females originally).
