They all look so fantastic! I really can't wait until I can get breeding adults and add to the captive bred population here on the U.S. west coast. Please please please keep pics like these coming. I think they will influence others that captive bred animals are truly the way to go.

Wow very nice, my compliments to all those great breeders (you included Mark). Now if only there could be some captive bred Necturus...

Could be photoshopped. How about more just so we can be sure. :)

Brilliant pics. it is wonderful to see these species as captive bred animals....perhaps there is hope for Neurergus...

Captive breeding/rearing is definitely the best and is great for the hobby. I personally don't have the time or skills to do so, so I appreciate the efforts of those putting the time in to create these lovely critters.

Wonderful photos, Mark. This is a beautiful promotion of captive breeding:D

Although my photographic abilities don't match yours, I'll throw in another piece of "proof". These were bred by Audrey:

It seems this has been a really stellar year for captive breeding - members of the forum have bred T. gran's, Paramesotriton laoensis, Pachytriton labiatus, and I think there may have been even more - what am I missing? Way to go for those who have put forth the effort to breed and raise these animals!

It’s great to see traditional pet shop species (cynops, taricha, paramesotriton, patchytriton, etc) being bred in captivity. After all they are often the reason we get into this hobby in the first place… but sadly bred infrequently.

One more; Tylototriton kweichowensis bred by Andy Baker (not mine, I’m newtsitting).

Very old thread I know, but I thought I'd resurrect it.
This F3 pyrrho is the biggest male I've ever seen and is just getting his first breeding colours this winter. He's the only one I kept from his year because I injured his foot with the cover glass and felt sorry for him, glad I did now! :)
Does anyone else have any captive bred favourites?
