North American Newts (Notophthalmus & Taricha) While not closely related, these two genera are the true newts of North America.

Rep: joemomma1016 has started on the right path
Default Variants of taricha granulosa

I recently became a new owner of 4 taricha granulosa juveniles. A favorite newt of mine and a friend, (Seth), he brought up the individuals I got may have been from an Idaho population. Can anyone tell a difference in locality of these newts? Different physical features or how they act? Just curious and was interested to see what people thought. Thanks.

Sometimes the only way to tell them apart is know the location first. I'm sure that there would be some differences depending on the local conditions, but I don't think anyone could really tell you.

Animals from the Palouse are derived from coastal OR or WA. It's not clear if they are introduced, but they likely don't differ noticeably. It's not likely that these captive animals came from ID unless someone specifically went to one of the very few known sites to get them.

Only thing I can think of is that there is a non-toxic (Or abnormally less toxic) population of newts somewhere, I think in Oregon. Other than that there isn't much that makes the newts different, not much variation to my knowledge
