    Triturus Dobrogicus (Danube Crested Newt)

    Sold By: Houston Frogs

    The Danube crested newt or Danube newt (Triturus dobrogicus) is a species of newt found in central and eastern Europe, along the basin of the Danube river and some of its tributaries and in the Dnieper delta. Measuring 13 to 15 centimetres (5.1 to 5.9 in) long in total, sometimes up to 18 centimetres (7.1 in) in females, the Danube crested newt is the smallest crested newt species. Both in water and on land, the newts are largely nocturnal. In their aquatic habitats, they hide under vegetation, and on land, they use structures such as logs, rocks, or small animal burrows for cover. You will receive a juvenile of 2-4 months of age. All newts and salamanders are bred by Amphibios Labs in Austin, Texas. You must select overnight shipping for all animals at checkout.

    Triturus Marmoratus (Marbled Newt)

    Sold By: Houston Frogs

    Unlikely to be mistaken for any other species of Triturus, the Marbled Newt is one of the largest newts in its genus, with specimens of Triturus marmoratus marmoratus over 17 cm total length known. T. m. marmoratus is found from France into northern Spain and Portugal, though it is absent from parts of the Pyrennese mountains in southern France and northern Spain. There are a number of ways to maintain these newts.  Perhaps the most successful is the large semi-aquatic setup. A 120 cm long x 40 cm tall x 30 cm wide aquarium (48 x 16 x 12 inches) that is 50% water and 50% land is ideal for three pairs (note that males are relatively aggressive in the breeding season so you could keep more females than males in such a setup). Juveniles can be raised on gut-loaded hatchling crickets, white worms and fruit flies. Sexual maturity in captivity typically takes 2-4 years. You will receive a juvenile of 2-4 months of age. All newts and salamanders are bred by Amphibios Labs in Austin, Texas. You must select overnight shipping for all animals at checkout.

    Ichthyosaura Alpestris Apuana (Alpine Newt)

    Sold By: Houston Frogs

    Alpine Newts can live up to 30 years. On land, alpine newts are mainly nocturnal, hiding for most of the day and moving and feeding during the night or in the twilight. The alpine newt normally measures 8-12 cm (3-4.5 in), although the male is usually slightly smaller and thinner than the female. Food for the adults can consist of maggots, earthworms, strips of raw lean meat (removed immediately if not eaten) and anything else that can enter their mouths. Juveniles and larvae can be fed Artemia (brine shrimp), tubifex, chyronomid larvae (bloodworms), daphnia, cyclops and Enchytraeus (white worms). If kept indoors, alpines can be kept in either a semi-aquatic or completely aquatic set up. Water depth should be at least 20 cm (8 in). Water temperature should never be allowed to go above 23°C (73°F), but alpines prefer temperatures in the range of 10-18°C (50-65°F). You will receive a juvenile of 2-4 months of age. All newts and salamanders are bred by Amphibios Labs in Austin, Texas. You must select overnight shipping for all animals at checkout.
