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.
