Loved our newt!

Bertha was a great pet--we were a little wired about handling her because of the commotion surround salmonella, but she was fun to watch from the outside!
Low maintenance and, of course, without any noise (unlike dogs!), newts make great pets for families just teaching their kids about responsibility for the first time. They're fun to watch, definitely. Just make sure your little ones know that they can't be handled all the time!
