Default My Tarichas (pics)

Hi.

I photographed my Tarichas this week. The skinnier of the two (bottom picture) had a near miraculous recovery from extreme starvation, he's starting to fatten up a bit and has begun to be bold enough to be handfed.

Beautiful newts! How and what did you feed your T.torosa to fatten it up?

Thanks for the comments. The Tarichas certainly have become my favourites too.

- Supergrappler - I fed them cut up earthworms and the occasional piece of raw fish. Always placing food at the same place near the hiding spot at lights out, every night and changed to fresh food if it wasn't eaten during the night. I tried hard to disturb them as little as possible, only natural daylight.

I think that was the key in this case: Consistent supply of food + Peace and quiet.

Thank you for the advice. I have 2 large morphs and 1 medium morph and 1 tiny one. They are all the same age but one just seems really small for his/her age. Its active and eats but seems much smaller than the others.

I will implement your advice using natural light only and keep disturbance at a minimum.

I appreciate your help!
