Instead of buying newts from the zoo I found a lot ot them in the forest as a kid. I thought they wouldn´t survive the winter inside but they did. They never even hibernate. I fed them with live worms or dead frozen mosquito larvaes.
After about 1,5 years they reproduced and got a few babies. Unfortunately only one survived and the rest got eaten by the parents.
Lovely animals living both on land and in water.
