Triton ordinary

Common Triton does not look like a fish. It does not have that softness, vulnerability and touchingness, as in gentle fish, surrounded by lace fins and a luxurious tail.

This is a characteristic and vivid creation, similar to the salamander, and presented in nature with several variants, each of which has only its own characteristic features.

The species of these reptiles can differ significantly from each other in:

  • sizes;
  • coloring;
  • required living conditions;
  • character.
  • Comb Triton

Comb Triton – the largest individual, capable of growing up to 18 cm in length. During the breeding period on the back of the male, a jagged expressive formation in the form of a crest forms, giving the animal similarity to a dragon.

This formation occupies the entire upper part of the body (from the crown to the edge of the tail).
Asian Newt

The Asian Newt is a little different from this species. If you do not take into account its smaller size (up to 12-14 cm), it affects the height and serration of its crest.

This rather rare species looks slightly threatening and shocking.
Threadbred Triton

Even smaller is the thread-bearing newt, whose dimensions do not exceed 6 cm.. His appearance is softer and more familiar, and his character is less aggressive.
Pygmy Newt, Chinese fire-bellied newt

Very extravagant dwarf newt, having a second name: fire-bryus. Such a term arose not spontaneously, but due to the bright and bright red color of the abdomen abdomen.

All tritonchikov have one interesting feature: independently change the skin. Such a high regenerative capacity has long been of interest to scientists and biologists.

This is the tomorrow of the natural sciences and a problem that has not been fully studied. In addition, the individual immediately eats its old “appearance”, leaving no traces.

Aquarium Triton cannot be called a mystery of nature, but it still has a number of mysterious properties. Having a cold-blooded nature, reptiles prefer the water temperature in the aquarium not higher than 22o. Triton Karelin, for example, is able to multiply in water with a temperature of 6o.

Therefore, with the potential for heating water, for example, from a lamp, a cooling device should be provided.

Triton Karelina

Iranian newt, having an indescribable range of color combinations (orange belly, white sides and black back), like many species, likes to bask in the “sun terrace”, equipped directly near the aquarium. Only with this improvement a little friend is able to be healthy and beautiful.

Iranian newt

Interesting tailed amphibian marble triton. The color of its surface allows it to be imperceptible against silt or thick aquarium vegetation.

Bright green intricate pattern on a dark background is a kind of natural mimicry that allows you to adapt to life in an aquarium with predators.

Marble Triton

The peculiarity of aquarium inhabitants is the ability to adapt to the general rules, eat universal food and lead a more or less unified lifestyle. However, with respect to tritonchik it does not always work.

So, the thread-bearing newt loves aktivnichat at night, when other residents of the aquarium are resting and the danger is minimal. At the same time, the crocodile newt, which has a dim, but variegated color, is not afraid to be noticed due to its similarity to water ripples.

He swims safely during the day practically on the surface.
