Will say: I'm also lucky
The larvas from last year were until now in the water (one is still in the water) and now they are in metamorphose (8cm), and already new little larvas in the water - isn't it great?

Smashing! T.taliangensis captive breeding is always lovely news.
Good job, and thanx for sharing :)
 
Amazing!!! Good job!
 
Could you provide information on how you keep them year-round and your experience raising the larvae? what temperatures are they exposed to?
Also, are they housed in that same tank all the time?
 
Thanks for posting this. I've kept T. taliangensis but had no success in getting them to spawn. A friend of mine now has most of the ones I used to keep. Is their a "secret" to triggering them to breed?
 
They look absolutely fantastic and an excellent size!

Congratulations!

Mark
 
Amazing success! Well done to you and the newts. If you could share any info with us about temperature cycling, housing etc that would be great. I'm pretty certain that's the first time I've ever seen a cb taliangensis.
 
I offer my congratulations as well. I am Michael's friend (I guess :) ) that has had a group for years with no breeding. I would love for you to post details of your husbandry techniques.

Hello everyone,

I am sorry for the delay. I had problems with my computer.

Thanks for sharing your oppinions and also thanks for the congratulations.
In the following I can just describe what I did that seemed to be resulting in this success:
I keep them in my backyard from Spring to Autumn in a tank 80 x 80 cm in a most shadow covered place, small parts of the tank get direct sunlight as well.
The tank is slightly transversal. Waterlevel is ca.1 cm at the back of the tank, and about 12 cm at the front because that makes it possible to create several levels of dry areas in the back of the tank (mostly stones, cork bark and rough moss that is also reaching into the water). I give them plenty of food constantly: Crickets, worms, waterlouses, freshwater shrimps.
The back part of the tank is covered with perforated plate because I had seen local bird sittin in the tank and feeding on the crickets I gave as food.
On the other parts the tank is fully exposed to rain and all weather conditions. Therefore I have to watch the waterlevel and remove water that is to much. When removing water I also make sure to clean (removing dirt from the water etc). No filteration in the tank at all.
During winter I keep them in a box with only cork and moss (40x70cm) and in a cold room in the basement. The temperature is underneath 10° Celsius. In the winter I continue feeding with crickets and worms.
In all my tanks I feed rasped bio-carrott to the crickets as well.
The larvae and the youngsters stay in the tank with the adult animals for the whole summer outside and will be sepearated from the adults in Autumn when the adults will be moved into the winterbox. If there is still larvas, they will be kept in watertanks but also in the cold room during winter.

Congratulations Ummi, thanks for sharing this awesome achievement. Don't they eat each other in the same set up??
 
AW: Re: Lucky T. Taliangensis and me

It's no risk to let them together with the adults. Just one hour ago I took the young Taliangensis out of the tank and gave them a "landbox".
You see on the left a female with 24cm.There are all together 30 juvenils and new larvas already in the tank, I'm deeply contented,

Excellent. your success has given me a real interest at getting a pair and trying myself.:happy:
 
Your animals are looking very good/healthy. Not many people are succesfull in breeding Tylo species. You can be proud of yourself. Thanks for the tips!

I will be on Urodela/Gersfeld on "Freitag". Hope to see you there. Ich plane eine Menge Bier zu trinken und viel zu reden über Molche!
 
This is a great specie to. I should go to Gersfeld to on friday. Maybe I will.

wil je wel even engels blijven praten Niels;)
 
Dear Peter, I congratulate you for another breeding and raising success. Like Neils said, you are one of very few people to breed such nice and difficult animals in constant numbers. The photo of the early larvae is simply stunning. I wish I someday have my macro lense pointed to such amazing gilled larvae. Looks like they are nearly taking-off with such 'wings'.
All the best,
Jorge

P.s. @ Peter, have you received my last emails? I've been trying to contact you but I am with a few problems with my email account, so I don't know if there were replies or not.
Let me know via this site or so.
Cheers,
 
AW: Re: Lucky T. Taliangensis and me

now the adult Taliangensis are in the "wintercase", the larvas are still outside in the garden,

Awesome, I would love to see more breeding of taliangensis. Great job, in the end the survival of species such as this may very well depend on people like you making great efforts to explore breeding conditions and subsequently show other ppl that it can be done. Congrats!
