Probably a newt... Some time ago I used to have an old boat in my garden. When I finally took it away, I found five of these little animals hidden there. I guess they were newts (triturus vulgaris), but maybe someone here in the jungle knows better...!?

  1. I don't believe this is a smooth newt the coloration is more typical of a Great Crested Newt, which is typically this dark black color. Posted one year ago
