Hello All!

I had to give my Tylototriton wenxianensis away to a new home, but I wanted to post some pictures of them before they left, for your pleasure.
Hope you will like these.

Those are great pics Mikhail. Are you certain that they are wexianensis? I ask because I have some small, black, mystery Tylototriton that I am trying to get a positive ID on.

Hello Chip!

I'm def is not very sure of the id of this species as I'm not a specialist of this group of animals but these were come from original China dealer who seems like knew his stuff very well.
The other species someone can mix it to me is Echinotriton asperrinus or Ech. vietnamense (if both are not the same). The last one i was faced personally in the wild and they are not the same i think.
Here's a pictures for comparison (i may post some into separate thread if needed).

Another nice pic! My group is definitely either T. asperrimus, T. hainanensis, or T. wenxianensis. It is very difficult for me to differentiate between these species.

I don't know does the above valid characters i trying to describe and may help you or not but...
As far as i know the real Tylototriton wenxianensis not only never goes for breeding into the water during the breeding season, but instead afraid of water at all. They even clutch eggs usually on the shore near the water and not directly into water. More of this 5 specimens I had for last time was lethargic and show no any activity, each movement of any of these is very-very slow.
But as for Echinotriton asperrimus (= vietnamense) they are not only active species under water but also able very quickly to move on the ground, found into water where they mate and clutch and can easily escape if you not manage to catch them quick down to deep. I observe the described behavior personally during my research trip to N. Viet Nam this year. It was even not simple to make good shots of the last species, not like you can settle Tylototriton wenxianensis at display and it stays like this for hours...

    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
