Eastern newt (juvenile)

Notophthalmus viridescens

Description:

The eastern newt is a common newt of eastern North America. They frequent small lakes, ponds, and streams or near-by wet forests. - from Wikipedia

Notes:

I actually saw adults earlier in the small pond (last picture), so I started to look for juvenile. Juvenile red-spotted newts are vibrant red and so pretty.

Thank you very much for your comment, dotun55. I am not expert but I believe newt and lizard are two different creatures. Here is an explanation of the difference between the two: http://www.arc-trust.org/advice/faqs/oth...
