Default Re: URGENT Please Help

This looks like what my newt has got. I've heard it called "the shine", the most common symptoms are irregular shiny skin and exaggerated hip and spine bones. I don't think your newt is very thin, I think he's got the shine. I agree with Chinadog that shiny skin is a sign that something is wrong. I've also heard that head sores and something that looks similar to hiccuping are symptoms as well. If I'm right, then the best course of action is to put him in a terrestrial setup where his skin is allowed to dry a bit. Cool temperatures help as well, and keep on feeding him. Hope that helps.
