Triturus Marmoratus (Marbled Newt)
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.
