    Just a quick question. Can aquatic newts such as the paddle tail newt be handled?

    They can, but it needs to be kept to a minimum. They absorb everything through their skin, like frogs, so any toxins you have, they pick up. Handle only when doing things like cleaning enclosures. They are more of a look but don't touch kind of animal.

    That's what I thought. Just in case though. Only in emergencies.

    Just be sure to give your hands a thorough rinsing first without soap.
