  • Ovoviviparous; In some populations of the northern Iberian Peninsula females retain their offspring throughout development and give birth to fully metamorphosed terrestrial juveniles. (SK: neonates probably sport cannibalism in the uterus) (ref: AlcoBuck2004)
  • Males are generally somewhat smaller (ref: caudata)


  • All temperatures are guessed
