this year there are a few larvae, for this is the appetite of adult greater, every third day a worm in addition to what they eat in the water. When I enter the room then immediately go up the heads, like if they wanted say:"already"

WOW beautiful newts, are they captivity breed or wild caught? I just got my T. Kweichowensis & they don't go underwater, how do I make them go in the water? Thanks!

They are breed in captivity, 10 years old now. From August to March/April they are in a terrarium in my basement. In the springtime I let them right into the water,

Oh okay, mine never go underwater but their whole tank is water with three docks. Is it normal for a T. Kweichowensis to never go underwater? Thanks

Ya I know but I'm a little concerned that they will die in their setup, is it okay to house them in a mostly aquatic setup

Kweichowensis aren't an Water loving Tylototriton species, they only tend to really go in the Water when it comes to breeding season, you could easily get away with just having a water bowl in there until breeding season comes around in all honesty. They won't die in their set up, they are mostly Terrestrial species anyway lol

Elliot: my spring - summer basin for kweichowensis has a water level of 12cm with large places on stones and barks outside the water. Resting places beneath the water surface are also offering. Never problems to go into water, but the time they are in this basin is at the most three month,

Hi Ummi,what an excellent work you did in Tylo's breeding ! Thank you for explaining it all.

Obviously you have succeeded in breeding many species of Tylo,one of the most beautiful and under threatened genus of newts. You must have a lot of experience.

All newts breeders would care about problems about temperature,water area,water deep, the complete year cycle,mating condition or sex ratio....Would you like to tell us more details? Really thank you.

Is it possible that animals from different collection areas behave differently with regard to their tollorance of water? It does seem that yours look especially healthy.KB

    Do you guys think I could put some water ina clear tote and put my salamande rin to swim around? For enrichment and fun kinda deal? Do you think he would even like that? or would he sketch cuz its just water and the bottom is like 2 feet down kinda deal? Can they swim well? I dont want to drop him in and scare him unless I know for certainnheh can swim.I havent googled it yet. I know they go into vernal pools, but a vernal pool is a lot different than 2 to 3 feet of water straight down.

    Google says " Free-living adults rarely enter water other than for breeding, but a shallow, easily-exited water bowl will be utilized by captives. " is that true? So he would HATE dropping him in some nice deep water to swim around for a little bit?" Hes got a nice big tank to wander around in but I find he constantly wants to just chill under his big hidey rock, and peek out every once in a while Lol

    So, how often do I have to change the soil in my yellow spotteds terrarium? The soil looks fine, he stays under his rock all the time, so should I maybe only change put the soil from udner the rock? Or do I change it all out cuz its all stayed moist and I dont wnat it it mold kinda deal? Its been around 40 days with the same soil. It looks and smells completely fine though. I dont know what salamander poop even looks like, but Im not even finding any. I put pill bugs in his cage for him and they disappear, theyre not burrowing, so he MUST be eating them. What am I looking out for when the soil needs to be changed? Clearly the people whos aid they were coming to seize my salamander have forgotten and arent coming back.
