The Eastern Newt - Notophthalmus viridescens is a great alternative to the common or european Newt for thsoe living on the Eastern Coast of the USA. I love keeping these and I foudn them very exciting and interesting to keep and try to breed. They are a small and gentle species of newt and are absolutely stunning in my opinion. They very well in small 60 litre tank setups and require a small piece of land to rest on as well. I provide mine with a lot of moss on their piece of land that has a false bottom so that the water can drain out of it very easily. They eat very well and a great option for intermediate keepers that are looking for a small pet suitable for apartments or a bedroom. A great animal for any amphibian enthusiast.
