Rep: KingSloth is an unknown quantity at this point
Unhappy T. torosa suddenly died...

My california newt was being fed 2-3 times a week, chopped nightcrawlers, and then one day I came to check on him and he was a skeleton. I had him in a 10 g, with fake sphagnum moss, and two cork bark hides. He had a pretty big water dish that he spent almost all of his time in, I fed him in there too. He was about one inch long, I caught him in December 2017, and he did so well all this time. What could have happened?

Default Re: T. torosa suddenly died...

My best guess is the sudden escalation of heat we've been experiencing did him in. I know my T.sierrae are certainly getting toasty; it's hard to keep California spp. cool enough (72-75F)

Either that or such a small specimen was vulnerable to a captive transition..
