Eurasian Newts (Triturus, former Triturus, Calotriton & Euproctus).. Triturus and its relatives (Ichthyosaura/Mesotriton, Lissotriton, and Ommatotriton) are a diverse and widespread group of newts. While mainly European, several species can be found in the Near and Middle East. Euproctus, the brook newts, are confined to Corsica and Sardinia.

Default An unexpected guest!

Hi All,

Have a look at these photos of a baby newt that turned up in our lounge tonight! We think it may have come in with some coal we brought in (fortunately we didn't light the fire).

It's a Triturus (or Lissotriton if you insist) helveticus - I know this as we don't have vulgaris in these parts. For an idea of scale, you can see part of my little finger in some of the photos. And I have small hands!

He's now safely out in the garden.
Tristan
