Snapped a couple of Autumn looking pics in the pyrrho tank earlier, they are just getting their breeding colours, I thought they looked nice against the dark Oak leaves. They don't make the best hiding places though. I think the game's nearly up for Mrs pyrrho!
Has anyone else got any seasonal pics? :)

Beautiful photos and newts Ben! I always love seeing your pyrrhos. I've got a few seasonal photos, but i'm waiting til later in the year when i'll put all my best photos of this year into a thread.

EDIT: Just realized two of the "seasonal photos" are on my profile picture and avatar, LOL

There, fixed it for you. ;) :)

HAHA! Took me 5 minutes to realize that you had changed the quote. I couldn't figure out what you were on about :lol:

Alright then. Here you go, some seasonal pictures. And since you've already seen two of them, i'll add in some different angles.
I should also probably take more, been waiting for a while to take pictures with fall colored leaves but I've only done it with 3 species!

I don't have anything nice referring to autumn in the tank, but the smaller male is full of energy and chases ladies...I tried to capture him in a pic waving his tail but I'm too slow :)

I think you'r pyrrhos are the same strain as mine, they are eerily similar!
Are you're pics are sized too small, I can't get them to blow up from your post?

Yeah, I see that now :/ I have to try again with better time to see what happened - they were sent from my phone to e-mail since the connection by phone to caudata is too slow to attach pictures...but it's true our newts share the same looks! Where did you get your original group, do you have location?

My original trio were wild caught imports, I was told they came from Kyushu, but that's not specific enough to say for sure what race they are. They do look like sasayama and the males do the thing with their back leg when mating so that's the way I'd bet, but I'll never be 100% certain I guess.

Testing, testing...let's see how they look now when I copied them directly to computer (annoyingly they are poor colour quality when I watch them on the screen).

    I've advertised my CB alpine newts for sale UK but no offers so far. I'm looking for a carer/enthusiast so I put a price to deter people who might not be serious about the responsibilities of the undertaking but how do I find a genuine enthusiast who will take over care? I'm not looking for money, just a good home for the newts.

    Hey guys, its way too hot where I live right now. Temperatures 40 degree celcius outside, making it like 30 degrees inside. Ive got ice packs on my yellow spotted salamanders hidey rock, he acts like he hates it though. Am I keeping him too cold? I think my temp gauge might be messed up, or at least in the wrong spot. I put the tank temp gauge in the top left corner of his large tank, where it says its 80 degrees fahrenheit, which I am aware is too hot, which is what makes me put the ice packs on his rock at the bottom of the cage, but the bottom of his cage feels a lot cooler tha 80 degrees. Should I move my temp gauge down to the bottom corner where he hangs out the most? Should I get a soil temperature probe so I can tell what temperature the soil that hes laying on is?

  • FragileCorpse:
    Because his soil is certainly not 80 degrees fahrenheit, and I dont want to freeze the poor bugger with ice packs if he really doesnt need them. Hes been doing fine, but Im just so stressed because I cant get ANy information on how to handle this little guy. Theyre illegal to keep without a permit, but this one would not have survived without my intervention. So I cant call and ask anyone for help. If theres a betetr site than this one, I sure havent found it. But I never get any replies here. We are all just asking questions and getting none answered basically. Its really frustrating as I just want to help this little dude be happy and healthy. All I can get him to eat is potato bugs as well. I cant find anything else that he will eat. Is that even okay? :/ hes been eating strictly those since may first.

    I'm afraid this is the largest and most active community for this kind of information, probably on the entire internet. That said, we are still small overall. We can't help you all of the time. We do offer you support and have answered your questions in the past so I feel it's very impolite to lose patience with us.

    Second of all, was you who said you wild caught your salamander? And had Authorities threaten to retrieve it from you?

    Third of all, assuming thats the case, no one seems to want to face the reality that these animals come from climates and microenvironments where they need to be kept cool. If you can't hack, then release it where you pulled it from.

    he was dying outside. SO SORRY i was nice enough to save him. can i even release him in wetaher thats 40 degree celcius? will he not just die outside because he cant dig through the hard ground?

  • FragileCorpse:
    The ONLY reason I spent 500 dollars on this thing was to keep him alive. thats IT. He was completely dry with cracked skin and couldnt walk and I nursed him back to health. Now I should just throw him outside on the hard baked ground where I found him? in my driveway? Really dude?

    I am losing patienc ebecause I care. Because I cant get any answers in any length of time that will actually benefit him. He'll only eat potato bugs, I just want him to have good rest of his life. Thats IT. So dont act like I went out an dillegally trapped some poor salamander out of the wild for fun cuz I wanted one.

  • FragileCorpse:
    I am very sure he was just trying to pass by, because he certainly cant dig ANYWHERE in the soil ANYWHERE near where I live. So I cannot just release him in 40 degree celcius on the super hard baked ground where theres no shelter and no food and now ater to be seen for miles. I dont see how that wioll help him at all.
