Default Re: Elderly Newts

Thanks Jen but, I just realized where I went wrong....the newts were Chinese firebellies not Japanese..so I think the scientific name was correct and the common name was wrong....which I suppose would mean that the 2 species were mixed after entering this country as I was given a Chinese firebelly and the gold dust and they had both been picked from the same holding tank!

I was wondering if there had been any updates on the native Japanese newt populations since the tsunami?

Thanks!
