Newt - interesting facts and information

Like all amphibians, newts go through a life cycle with a larval stage in the water, which then undergoes metamorphosis into adult land forms. Adult newts spend most of their lives on land, but return to the water to reproduce.

Newts are usually small, with bodies measuring 10 to 20 centimeters. They have smooth, slippery skin and long, creeping bodies with four short legs. Their coloration can vary from species to species, but they are often brown, gray or green with light spots or stripes.

Most newts are nocturnal and lead a hidden life. They are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of foods, including insects, snails, earthworms and other small animals. Some species are known for their ability to produce toxic secretions that protect them from predators.

Newts have an important place in the ecosystems in which they live, contributing to the control of insect and other pest populations. However, many species are threatened by habitat loss and pollution, leading to declines in their numbers.
