I have three of these :)
dont know if linking other websites is allowed but caudata.org is a brilliant site for the care of newts/amphibians and axolotls.
My newts eat blood worm and brine shrmip. I feed them every 3 days; they shouldn't be fed daily as far as I am aware.
Newts are brilliant lol.
My 3: Isaac "stomps" around the tank and my boyfriend things its hysterical. Isaac has a good stare and she sometimes runs across the tank on her back legs with her arms wafting around (like a kid)
Flame: if you put your finger up to the glass flame will walk around it, unlike Isaac who stares at it. Flame was a big swimmer but now she is turning into a "stomper" as well.
Tiny: One word describes him; PATHETIC lol. He has to be hand fed; he won't eat for himself; he is terrestrial and if he falls into the water he panics; however he likes sitting in a shallow dish. People claim newts don't like to be handled; Tiny does; I dont handle them much; except when moving them to clean them and Tiny doesn't want to let go generally. He was on my hand once and my boyfriend went to say hello to him and he gradually backed up until he was safe with his 'mammy' lol. He is brilliant!
