    Great work Thomas :) Thanks for the updates. I had the opportunity to observe the courtship of Lissotriton vulgaris in my parents garden pond a couple of days ago. Very fascinating creatures.

    Would love to keep european species, but the regulations let me take my hands off from them. Ok, at Triturus marmoratus or pygmaeus I could imagine to do an exception…:smile:

    The next step. The seam of the biggest larvae begins to reduce. On the back you can see the small red dots, it goes more and more in direction terrestrial life.The larvae is about 30 mm.

    Brilliant. 😀 Do they remain semi-aquatic for a while or go fully terrestrial now?

    Fully terrestrial, next bath in 2015…. that’s one of the difficulties by this species – they need many small food for a long time. Hope that micro crickets fit…

    If I measure correctly, 32 mm.

    Since two weeks at land. It has unusual amount of red dots, on the left side looks a bit like a second row.

    Looking great Thomas. :-)

    What kind and size of tank/bucket are you keeping them in?

    Hi Rüdiger,

    they are sitting in a 20×12 cm Faunabox. Not sure how many I put in there… this works fine for the first months.

    He meant it’s a good idea leaving the water with only 25 mm / 0,98 inch
