Product Description

Fascinating and easy-care amphibians that are ideal for classroom aquariums and terrariums. Newts, as a rule, are primarily aquatic but should have access to land areas. Life span 12-20 years. A state permit is required to ship to Oregon and Washington.

Eastern Newt (Notophthalmus viridescens)
Generally, coloration is olive-green overall with distinctive lines of flame-orange spots on each side; length 3"-5"; primarily aquatic. 

MAINTENANCE: Newts prefer waters that are relatively densely planted with live or artificial aquarium plants. Feed smaller newts live Tubifex, earthworms or Daphnia. Larger newts will eat earthworms, small crickets, mealworms and other slow-moving insects.
