I was looking at the eggs my Tylos had laid and noticed one with two embryos! I pulled it out along with a few other eggs to raise so we'll see what happens.
I also noticed some eggs that look like they're all in the same jelly, a bit like Bufo toad eggs, has anyone seen anything like it before?

I once had some Pleurodeles eggs in a continuous jelly string, like the case you describe here for T. verrucosus.
The female was very plump and had not laid for a while before that.

Same here, the females have been gravid for a month or two. I think the crazy weather we're having here in the UK might have set them off, it's been yo-yoing from about 8-22F over the last week!

They both hatched as normal larvae and I lost track which ones they are, I haven't lost any larvae though, so they are certainly still going strong.
Btw, Your animals look very similar to mine, are they descended from the John Clare/Ummi bloodline?

Mine originally came from Michael Shrom, so whereever he got his from. I got them in 2004 or 2005, so it was a while ago.

Forgot to mention these are from Niels D. I copied the picture codes from another forum. He knows about this post of course. He's on a herping trip, but I found these pictures to be very nice to add to this thread, also because I saw the egg myself. Very beautiful if you ask me.

Already back. It turned out to be more of a beer trip because of the weather. We wanted to see the P.muralis in Maastricht (only known Dutch population), but we ... well. Let's say we kept on ordering until our vision wasn't suitable to spot small lizzards anymore.

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
