Default Taricha Granulosa

I now have sitting on my kitchen window ledge a little group of this years captive bred German Taricha granulosa. They are approximately 2" in length and incredibly gorgeous They are currently fed white worm and small earthworm, they are fully aquatic except for the odd venture up the side of the glass.

AAAHHHHH i love T. Granulosa! they live around here too! They look great as well! i wish i could have bred mine but no eggs . They were in amplexus within a few hours after putting them in aquatic phase. Hoping they aren't all males! i cant find any males anywhere! last year i found 16 newts and only 2 were males. Congrats! -Seth

Lovely animals! When they do breed they really go for it - Patrick had a couple of hundred for sale this year!
How quickly do you think they'll reach maturity?

I believe it will be around four years.
These are offered a land area which they have rarely used so far. It seems that this group that he has raised seem to have stayed aquatic. I wonder if they choose to stay aquatic, if they reach maturity at a different age.
I am quite patient so will quietly wait and see.

hello, they are very beautiful. Maturity is around 4 years. I have Gerfeld acquisition of juveniles in Germany. They can stay water all the time. I advise you a contribution in brine which gives a beautiful orange belly.

Most of the little lovelies are now just over 3'' in length. They have progressed from live daphnia and white worm to earthworms. They are quite convinced that if the continuously beg for food, there will be a constant supply.

One by one, since the 23/1/14, I have had them dieing. It looks like something has poisoned them. I am down to three now, with one not looking too good.

I had fed them their usual meal of earthworms before going to work. When I returned two were dead. One by one they begin to float and curl up and then die, one appeared to go through a spell of convulsions . The live daphnia in their tank where still merrily swimming around.
I had my last order of earthworms for over a month and nothing appears amiss. These are kept in one of two worm buckets and fed vegetable peelings( I buy organic so I am reasonably happy there was nothing nasty on them). I have emptied the aquarium and nothing appeared amiss. The water quality was checked when the first became ill with my test kit, and a sample was tested at the local aquatic centre and that was spot on.

All my other animals that are fed from the same worm bin are good. I am at a loss to know what has caused this.
