Those are some sexy little newts. http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/wink.gif
On that fourth picture, what is he doing? I've seen mine doing the same thing, and I've been wondering what it is. Are they yawning or drinking?

Wonderfull pictures indeed

And I've seen my newts doing that yawn-thing as well. Not sure what it actually is either.

Hi,
I've often seen my newts "yawning" before they start shedding. Seems to me like they get their skin to break near the mouth when they do this, so they can start shedding.

My newts just yawn without shedding too. I mean, they do shed, but I don't think the little yawns have anything to do with it. Maybe that's they're way of saying that they want to go to bed and I should stop bugging them?http://www.caudata.org/forum/clipart/happy.gif
