    Paddle Tail Newt

    Does anyone know anything about them????
    I've seen one that looks like he is real healthy and active so I was thinking of getting him.
    But I don't know anything about them.
    Can someone help please?

    Re: Paddle Tail Newt???

    I never knew about newts or anything. I got one and he is one of the most coolest, easiest to take care of, happy little guy. But i don't know how to sex them. Just look for torn skin, improper shedding still stuck to him (They take it off like a glove! Again very cool to watch) foggy eyes, non-movement or funny looking belly. Otherwise I highly suggest getting one. Fill a tank with 3-4" of drinking water, put some rocks, sticks, leaves or whatever to let him get out and in the water as he pleases. Get some newt pellets, or blood worms. And some sort of water purifier ( I use little drops of a water balancer and a filtered pump) and sit back and watch him explore!

    I had two newts when I was very little, but I don't remember much of them except that they were cute little guys. Good luck with yours.
