    I'm not up on my newts, but they look like either alpine(leaning toward this one) or crested. Gorgeous. I have always wanted these, but they are kind of pricey when I have seen them for sale.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    honor_your_life: Thats a Chinese firebelly newt...Cynops orientalis. Have a few of those also.

    The Griffin: These ones happen to be Southern crested newts(Triturus karelinii). Currently raising 8 which are soon to be a year old. My plans are to keep a pair or trio and find homes for the rest. A guy I know has subadult pairs available for $45 which compared to some other herps does not seem expensive. If you find someone with eggs you can get them for almost nothing but you've gotta do the waiting and raise them up. They also don't ask for much...just a cool spot, clean water, and food(worms etc.)

    Some more recent photos.

    What kind of food do you feed those? I had a couple a few years ago and they didn't eat the pellets or crickets. What do you use?

    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    redworms mainly. FD or frozen bloodworms occasionally but worms are much easier.
