52 Species: Smooth Newt

It’s #wildlifewednesday! For 2020 I’m taking part in the #52speciesproject and learning about a different animal that lives in London and sharing what I’ve learnt about them on Wednesdays. We’re 9 weeks in (check out my previous blog posts if you’ve missed any!). This week I’ve been learning all about the smooth newt. It’s one of 4 main types of newt and often confused for the palmate newt. You can tell them apart from their bellies, smooth newts bellies are orange but palmate newts bellies are yellow!
Have you got any newt facts or stories? Let me know in the comments!
