Default What species is my newt?

Hello, last year a friend had a relative who owned a newt. This relative couldn't keep the newt anymore, and so I agreed to take it!
I truly love my new friend, but I never understood what species he actually is. Maybe you can help?

I also don't know how old he is... the owner said he had him for one year. Is it possible he is 2 years old?
