Red Belly Newt Experiences

I have had several of these Newts throughout my life and consider them good, easy to maintain pets. They don't stink up a terrarium/vivarium bad at all and are fairly active from my experience.
Would the red bellied newt make a good pet for kids? Absolutely, I had good times with mine while growing up. Food requirements are very simple and inexpensive for these guys. Kids sure love the bright bellied surprise when they pick them up!
