(13.Dec.2007) One of the most beautiful representative of the genus Tylototriton is available: T.shanjing. These beauties comes not on a regular base. Their habitat is the middle and western part of the chinese province Yunnan, Laos & Myanmar. They live in subtropical forests in an altitude of around 2000meters. The females lay up to 300 eggs in ponds or slow running rivers. They should be kept in a terrarium with forest soil, moos, leafs and a “bathing area”. Be careful about the temperatures: they should kept in a range of 15-20°C, during the night temperatures can drop. The max. size is around 17cm, but sexing them is only possible for specialized hobbyists. In general it is a very interesting item, which is not recommended to inexperienced people.
