Sexing Newts

There are several different ways to determine the gender of your newt. This can be valuable if you wish to breed them or more importantly, not breed them. Of course, the gender of the newt can only be determined when they are mature.


Characteristics of Male Newts:

-Slender body

-Longer tail

-Less robust body

-Enlarged vent

-Typically larger than female newt


Characteristics of Female Newts:

-Rounder bodies

-Tails almost even in proportion to the body

-Smaller but more robust than males
