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.

Default Re: Triturus karelinii humidity rate ?

In the wild humidity changes depending on the weather and season so newts have to cope with a range of conditions. Extremes should be avoided but a range of 40-70% is probably acceptable. High humidity and poor ventilation will certainly lead to health issues. Your best option is to ensure ventilation is good and the substrate is slightly damp to the touch. A range of hides will provide micro pockets of varying humidity giving the animals some choice.
