We have several live newts for sale, both aquatic and terrestrial, as well as some of the larger amphibian species available. These amphibians are part of the salamander family and make extremely entertaining pets, and excellent breeding specimens. When you buy a newt from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee. A newt is a salamander in the subfamily Pleurodelinae. The terrestrial juvenile phase is called an eft. Unlike other members of the family Salamandridae, newts are semiaquatic, alternating between aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Not all aquatic salamanders are considered newts, however. More than 100 known species of newts are found in North America, Europe, North Africa and Asia. Newts metamorphose through three distinct developmental life stages: aquatic larva, terrestrial juvenile (eft), and adult. Adult newts have lizard-like bodies and return to the water every year to breed, otherwise living in humid, cover-rich land habitats.

Newts are threatened by habitat lossfragmentation and pollution. Several species are endangered, and at least one species, the Yunnan lake newt, has become extinct recently.
