    In the cellar the temperature was 12°C and the adults start to getting active, so I end the overwintering and take them back into the fish room.

    Directly from the cellar:

    Is this early for them Thomas or same as last time?

    Yes, last year it goes from mid of december till mid of march (12 weeks), this year it began in mid of november and ceased in the beginning of january (7 weeks)
    While the 12 weeks last year there were times where the temperature was round about 13°C and the newts were very active. This doesn’t happens this year.

     

    Both males are now in water, and the female in an extra tank seems to do it the same…:)

    I had some great luck this weekend in finding eastern newts for the first time in the wild. I was checking out some vernal pools in a local state park and found adults and tadpoles along with huge numbers of wood frog tadpoles, American toad eggs (and spawning adults) and what I think are spotted salamander eggs. I had checked these pools out many times over the years but this is the first time I have seen newts. The bottom of both pools are covered with fallen leaves so I can see how I missed them. They blended in well with the background and had plenty of places to hide. Now I can check back over the summer and hopefully will be able to find some red efts. Laugh

    Really great Thomas – do you keep all the generations together?

    No Matt, the cb 2014 are in a separate small tank. The cb 2013 and the adults live together.

    Since mid of november it’s overwintering time again. Maybe in the beginning of january I can start the operation F2. The cb 2013 are then nearly two years old.

    I have taken a shot while controlling their health. On the pic are three adults and two of the cb 2013.

     Cheers,
