Eastern Newt For Sale
The eastern newt, or Notophthalmus viridescens, is a species of newt native to eastern North America. It may be found in moist woods, marshes, and wetlands, as well as in tiny lakes and ponds. For predatory fish and crayfish, the eastern newt is a nonstarter because to the presence of tetrodotoxin in the animal’s system. It may live up to 15 years in the wild and reach a length of up to 5 inches (13 centimeters).
These creatures are frequently kept as aquarium pets, either because they are easily obtainable from the wild or because of the lucrative trade that surrounds them. Juveniles are known as “red efts” and have a striking brilliant orange color; they live on land. The eastern red-spotted newt is a common misnomer that combines the common name with the subspecies’ name (although there is no “western” one).
Habits and Lifestyle
The life cycle of an eastern newt consists of three distinct phases: (1) the aquatic larva or tadpole, (2) the red eft or terrestrial juvenile stage, and (3) the aquatic adult.
