I love seeing these guys! I have some of similar size right now as well. But mine seem to be growing slower than your for some reason, even though I feed them enough and their first winter was warmer ( which is supposed to help in growth rate ).

Looking good! -Seth

Beautiful, it looks like they're back to 100% health wise! In the photo it looks like he's about to grab a worm, did you have to bribe him for the pictures? :)

They are still quite small Seth, maybe 3''. I have them on my kitchen window ledge, though they will soon be moved into my shed. I was worried about them over wintering there, but as it happens we have had a ridiculously mild winter :/ They are fed white worm, small woodlice and earthworm.
I bribe with worms :) I open up their lid and usually at least one appears looking hopeful :)

Oh ok. I thought yours were bigger than 3". My largest is about the same size.

Having purchased a new camera, these little guys were the first to be photographed . The first one on land had to be uncovered to find, whilst the other was lurking in the water waiting for the worm fairy to appear .

As these two are spending more time in water I decided to swap them to a more aquatic set up. While doing this I took a few photo's of them.

I think I do have both sexes :) Body shapes are different and there may be a difference in cloaca ... but they wriggle so much I was a tad worried about stressing them so couldn't look too clearly.

I hope so, It would really take some of the sting out of losing the others. I'm sure you're due some good karma from the great Taricha fairy's this time!

Wow, I still can't believe how fast yours are growing compared to mine. Either your doing something right, or it's just because mine are WC.

I agree, they look like male and female ( the male would be the one in the first picture ).
If they are, will you give them a go at breeding? -Seth

Default Re: Taricha Granulosa

I could be wrong, but judging by those photos they both look like males. The tail length and leg length are what I am going by. But then again these aren't mature yet so it is hard to say. Plus it is difficult to tell from the angle of those photos.

Maybe it would be best to separate them or put in a divider for a while to give her(?) a break? You never know, maybe a period of separation will help with breeding when the time comes?

I don't know for sure still as they may still be too young.
There is a difference in shape of their bodies and cloaca still... but I wouldn't be too surprised if they are the same sex. Having lost so many from the group, it would be too good to be true if they are a pair :)
