Re: Newt film or menbrance
I assume you are refering to the phenomenon of shedding their skins. This probably has several functions. One of them is to allow for growth, like what happens in snakes, for example, but it´s also important in the transitions from terrestrial to aquatic living as the shed allows for all the physiological transformations that the skin goes through. It may also serve to rid them of certain parasites, aid regeneration of wounds, etc.
