Default Winter Dormancy

In order to breed, newt and salamanders require seasonal changes to trigger development of sexual characteristics. I've just given two groups of newts (Neurergus kaiseri and Tylototriton kweichowensis) a terrestrial winter dormancy period and now brought them back into a warmer, more brightly lit semi-aquatic setup. Both groups entered the water and were active within an hour of entering the new environment. Now they will be well fed and I'll wait with fingers crossed to see what happens:



Sorry the quality of this video is poor, it was shot using a mobile phone but I hope it gives you an idea of the setups.
