Default New Cynops pyrrhogaster babies.

I've been looking for some more pyrrhos for a while now so was happy to pick these up yesterday. They were advertised as Sasayama, but I'm not so sure. Out of well over 150 Sasayama babies I've bred and raised to this size I can only recall one that didn't have a belly coloured stripe down its back, but no matter, there was no locality data with them so its all conjecture anyway I guess!
They look like a two males and a female and look well fed and alert so I'm pleased with them so far. I'm looking forward to seeing them grow and will post some better pics once they've settled in a bit.

Looking good ! Here’s my group of 5 that were sold to me as sasayama. I’ve never seen them eat but they obviously are lmao. Don’t know what would be a good point to transition them to water but I’m just glad they’re eating well.

Yes, they look well fed and healthy! Those look exactly like I would expect for Sasayama babies, the orange stripe is quite distinctive I think.
I used to move them to a weedy aquatic setup as soon as they looked like miniature adults, usually around 6-8 months after morphing for the ones I had, although I guess it depends on feeding and temps. If they are moved too soon they will just refuse to submerge and constantly climb the sides to escape. They will still take some convincing, even when they are big enough, not like the ensicauda popei have, they spend a day on the turtle dock, then it's back into the 18" deep water to live with their parents!
