>Dragonnewts are not an expanding race since they don't breed.

The Dragonewts themselves reproduce. Sandy one time (Codex #3)
said they had five sexes but breeding was pretty slow because
there was only one member of the fifth caste in all of Dragon
Pass.

The Ralian 'newts have no inhuman king so it is difficult to see how
they might reproduce. I assume it's related to their former human
ancestry (they were originally reptile hsunchen) and so captive
humans might be necessary for successful reproduction (even if
only as an unwilling host).
