Newts and Salamanders

Sparrow

Plant
No ice right now. Its a textured glass patio table. Looks icy but its not. Just raining lately.
I'm sure they go through a short dormancy through the colder months though.

I love newts and salamanders. I came across three of these little ones in my back yard.
I'm not sure what kind. Could be Wandering Salamander. But they are really cool and I'm happy they can thrive back there.

My favourite amphibians!
Wow they should be hibernating this time of year? What species is that? So cool!
I’m from England but live in Canada so I’m not to sure on Canadian newts/Sally’s.

Where I’m from we get Great Crested Newts They are protected species in the lowland England and UK.
The males look like mini Dimetrodons.

Wow they look amazing. I think I saw them for sale once at a reptile show but I can’t remember.
yikes! I highly doubt it my friend, as this species is only found in southern UK/Europe and are protected.
I can’t regard any North American species of newt particularly males that have a sail.
