The Morning Eft-er

No stopping me now; I’ve learned a  “newt” trick!

This is the first one I’ve seen this year.  These are the adolescents, or “efts” of their species.  Born in the water, maturing on land, then after puberty gradually growing a fin on their tails,  reverting to a muddy tadpole colour, and taking to the water again to mate.

  1. They don’t get any bigger than this one, about 3 inches nose to tail, although you sometimes see very tiny ones, only about an inch.  After every summer rainstorm we see dozens of them.

  2. 10 Cents:
    How much bigger will the newt get?

    Gussie Fink-Nottle would love this post.

    Now 10 Cents, don’t get your hopes up, you can’t make another television show like this one…
