Does anyone know if they develop more gold flecks after metamorphasis? I have five that just morphed, and only one has a few faint gold spots.

Hi Aaron,

some have this flecks direkt after metamorphosis, other develope flecks within the first year, sometimes within two years.

Mine have been morphed for about 3 months, and they seem to be developing the flecks gradually over that time. However, there are still a couple with no flecks at all, and I suspect they will never have much color.

Thanks for the answers. Ok, so there is some hope. Now I won't have to try to sell them off as "rare ungold gold dust newts." Click the image to open in full size.

We'll have to see how they turn out, then.
