Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Of course I will keep you updated. In the meantime everyone is welcome to post their own T. dobrogicus pictures and/or experiences.



Ciao!

Default The Escapist

Just some shots of my newts hanging out together between Elodea plants. I think the last one is planning an escape *lol*.

Default Piggyback

At the moment we are suffering under a heatwave in most parts of europe.
I am cooling my tank with crushed ice to keep the water-temperature below 25 °C while room-temperature rises to 27 °C.
Temperatures above 30 °C are rare where I live and usually don't stay long. The weather forecast says that it will get colder next week.
Compared with the place (Tulcea) where my newts origin, my home climate is considered mild. So I am very sure that Triturus dobrogicus is well adapted to higher temperatures.

I would say it's a female.

Thank you! That is also my opinion. The cloaca on a male would be larger and black and the bottom edge of it's tail would be black too.
My last hope is that it's still a juvenile coloration otherwise I have to deal with four females.

And it will be a pain in the quite complicated to get my hands on a male of that specific location. I hope the breeder still keeps these newts.

It's getting colder and my newts are more often on land, especially at night. One of them managed to burrow a hole into the moss. During the day they usually get into the water again, so it's easy to feed them and right now I'm feeding them a lot. Luckily I'm having an easy time finding nightcrawlers and slugs, because of the wet and cold weather conditions.

To prepare my newts for hibernation I increased the amount of food. In the last two weeks I fed them almost daily and now they are fat and round (check out the pictures) and ready to hibernate. Water temperatures are below 10 degrees Celsius already. I'll still keep my newts aquatic for the next week without feeding and then relocate them to their hibernation terrarium. Pictures of my hibernation-setup will follow soon.
