I picked up animals from two breeders at Gersfeld 2 of the smaller ones died from 1 breeder but I still have these beauties.
I have also raised 1 from egg that morphed but is really small and hardly eats and is quite problematic I have found these animals to be very pretty on the eye but particularly slow to raise and tricky to say the least , I can't wait for them to go aquatic

I love how disproportionate baby Laotriton look with their massive heads, a bit like T. verrucosus, only more so. Mind you, I saw some adults recently and they were pretty impressive as well, its a shame they are so nocturnal.
Good luck with them mate! :)

Hello Folks,
Does your Laotriton laoensis eats meal worms?
i normally feed them chopped earthworms and live tubifex worms
i just tried feeding meal worms.a few times. they didn't take it.
my Tylototriton verrucosus takes almost any worms i threw at them.
cheers!

hello folks
just to share. i tried feeding gut loaded freshly molted mealworms today
and yes they do eat them finally.
i guess it takes a while for them to get use to the smell?
cheers!
