Rough Skinned-Newt For Sale
The top of this stocky newt, with its rounded snout, can be any shade of brown, olive, or brownish black, while the underside, which includes the head, legs, and tail, is a bright orange to yellow. Although normally grainy, men’ skin becomes smoother during mating season. From head to tail, they are 6-9 cm long and 11-18 cm tall.
The California newt (Taricha torosa) is a close relative, however these creatures are distinguished by their smaller eyes, yellow irises, V-shaped tooth patterns, and consistently black eyelids. During the mating season, males may be identified from females by their enlarged vent lobes and cornified toe pads.
Sexing Your Rough-Skinned Newt
If you’re interested in purchasing one of our medium or adult sized amphibians, you’re welcome to specify a male or female newt (or a mix of the two) in your purchase; but, we cannot provide any sort of assurance regarding the sex. You may be certain, though, that an amphibian expert will make every effort to hand-pick the newt(s) you order.
