The only information that I could find stated that it takes 3-4 years for T. shanjing to reach sexual maturity. Just for a comparison T. verrucosus only take a year and a half to reach sexual maturity. If you have any questions you can PM me and I cand send you the link where this information was obtained.
I have a shanjing of 13cm and his cloaca is out (bigger every day) and I´ve seen thats a female and it its reaching his sexual maturity but in two years I´m gonna study out of the country and in that moment I will have to say goodbye to all my newts and focus in the studies just! I want to reproduce t.shanjing before that.. i have only 2years! if there is any problem if the male is bigger and older that the female? with 13cm its you many years in my female?
It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.
Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
