(1) The tail sweep of a tuna, a newt , a crocodile, or a whale is the leverage act of the backbone pushing water with the expanded tail.(2) After initially seizing and beginning to swallow a newt, many snakes subsequently release the newt after as much as one hour of holding the prey item in the mouth and upper digestive tract.(3) Rare species include the Pacific pond turtle, the California red-legged frog, the California newt , and the California tree frog.(4) But some populations of garter snakes eat the newt willingly.(5) A study by Conservation International, an American organisation, found that nearly a third of frogs, toads, newts and other amphibian species were likely to disappear within 100 years.(6) Their steep slopes are the nearest thing to a rainforest in Europe, overflowing with springs and pools which are home to salamanders and newts .(7) The park was transformed from wasteland in 1997 and is home to a fascinating array of wildlife including frogs, toads, newts , dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies and birds.(8) Water provides a breeding place for frogs, toads, newts and dragonflies.(9) Around 5,000 amphibian species, including frogs, toads, newts , and salamanders are thought to exist today.(10) Forty-four adult male and 11 adult female red-spotted newts were collected from a private pond in Chenango County, New York, in late May 2000.(11) There are newts , toads, frogs and fish - all of which birds feed on.(12) There are seven categories of fish, including the basking shark, and the same number of amphibians and reptiles such as turtles, toads, lizards and newts .(13) Truly cold-blooded animals like lizards, newts , turtles, and crocodilians, which are superabundant farther south are missing, he said.(14) Some amphibians we know today include frogs, toads, newts and salamanders.(15) The ├ö├ç├┐true salamanders├ö├ç├û tend to be smooth skinned, while the newts are unlike all other salamanders in having rough skin that is not slimy.(16) Among vertebrates, newts and other urodele amphibians show a remarkable capacity for regeneration.
