Well, I thought I would post some pics of my t.verr. It is kinda emarrassing because they are either overweight or gravid. I doubt the latter. I hope they are a 1:1 pair because I do want to breed them. Today I took them out and measured them. The large one is 13cm and 22.1 grams and the small one is 12cm and 20.5 grams. The "small" one seems super fat or possibly gravid. The "big" one seems just fat. The small one was half the size of the large one and more shy untill about 2-3 months ago. It has since become more bold and eats a lot. They are both fed on earthworms almost exclusively. I have a cloaca shot of each and some profile pics of them. Tell me what sex you think they are and anything else you care to share.

I'm not sure. I'd guess the one was gravid, but their cloacas look so non-descript.
Well, make sure there are a lot of plants and stuff in the water if the one is going to lay.

But just to add, when Elektra is full of eggs, she's freakishly gigantic, like the bottom animal in the third picture.

When they are gravid, my females do look like the big individual in the pictures, so I'll go to gravid for that one, not sure about the opther one. They are greedy newts and females whith eggs are enormous, I used to panic and think it could only be bloat, but they seems to recover everytime and then some eggs have appeared on the plants ;)

These look gorgeous! I'm hoping to get a few in the next few weeks, but I'm struggling to find anywhere in the UK to get them! :(

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
