Information about Salamanders:

Salamander is the common name of some 500 extant species of amphibian. They are generally have slender bodies, stout noses and are long-tailed. They have moist skin, and therefore are usually not found very far from water, such as swamps, marshes, bogs, caves and in riparian areas. They are the only vertebrates that can regenerate lost limbs and other body parts. Salamanders range from very small – such as the minute salamanders which grown to lengths of only about an inch, up to the large Chinese Salamander that grows up to 6 feet long. Most salamanders, however, are about 4-8 inches long. Like frogs and some other amphibians, salamanders are generally in decline due to habitat loss, climate change and the deadly fungal disease chytridiomycosis.

Information about Newts:

Newts are members of the family Salamandridae, which are true salamanders. They have lizard shaped bodies, and are usually aquatic or semi-aquatic. They are native to wet habitats in North America, Asia and Europe. Newts are slender bodies. Like other salamanders, they are able to regenerate lost limbs, although this process isn’t fully understood. Newts produce toxins in their bodies, meant to discourage predators. Like the poison dart frogs of Central and South America, some native North American used the toxins of the newt as an offensive weapon. Like other amphibians, newts begin their lives in the water as eggs, then hatching out to become larvae, then when they have reached adulthood, newts leave the water and dwell on the land, returning to the water only to breed. Both newts and salamanders are carnivorous. They are mostly nocturnal, and will emerge from their damp hiding spaces ad night to hunt insects and other small invertebrates such as worms, snails, and slugs.

Fine art illustration of an Alpine Newt (Ichthyosaura alpestris.) 

Information about the Alpine Newt:

Alpine newts are native to much of the mountainous regions of Central and Southern Europe (they have been introduced into other areas such as the UK.) The scientific or binominal name is Ichthyosaura alpestris, which has been changed from the previous name of Triturus alpestris and Mesotriton alpestris. The females are larger, growing to be about 4.7 inches (12cm) and the males are about 3.5 inches (9 cm.) Alpine newts typically inhabit forests with good access to water in hilly to mountainous regions. They are mostly absent in forest-poor areas. They populate well in thick deciduous forests, as well as parkland and natural gardens. Outside the spawning season, Alpine newts live terrestrially.

Information about the Blue-Spotted Salamander:

Blue-Spotted is a mole salamander native to the Great Lakes states and northeastern United States, and parts of Ontario and Quebec in Canada. Their range is known to extend to James Bay to the north, and southeastern Manitoba to the west. Blue-spotted salamanders are primarily found in moist, deciduous hardwood forests and swampy woodlands, though they can be found in coniferous forests and fields too. They prefer vernal pools that retain water into mid-summer, to ensure access to a suitable breeding habitat. Underbrush, leaf litter, rocks and logs are commonly used for shelter.

California Newt – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95
Fine art illustration of a California Newt (Taricha torosa.) 

Information about the California Newt:

The California Newt is a small amphibian native to the California coastline and in the Sierra Nevada. The are roughly 5-8 inches long. They are divided into two subspecies: the Sierra Newt and the Coastal Range Newt. During the non-breeding season the newts are land dwelling, preferring rock crevices and the undersides of rotting logs. While breeding, the newt prefers slow moving pools in coastal streams. Like other members of the genus the Taricha's glands in the skin secrete the potent neurotoxin tetrodotoxin, which is hundreds of times more toxic than cyanide. Due to this poison the California newt has few natural predators. To combat this toxicity some species of Garter snakes have developed a genetic resistance the newt's tetrodotoxin.

Emperor Newt – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Emperor Newt:

Emperor newts - also called the Mandarin Newt or Mandarin Salamander - is a member of the family Salamandridae. It lives in a high, mountainous area of Yunnan, China. They are generally found in ponds or slow moving streams. They grow to be about 8 inches long (20cm) Their bright coloration is a warning to potential predators that they're highly toxic. The toxin in the newts body is released through the orange, warty bumps on its back. This toxic is so lethal it could potentially kill over 7000 mice. It is not especially harmful to human though, and if the newt is handled gently it will not release any toxins. The Emperor Newt feeds on small insects and other invertebrates. Due to habitat loss and climate change their numbers in the wild have been declining.

Fire Salamander – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Fire Salamander:

The Fire Salamander is the most familiar of the salamanders of Europe. These amphibians live in forests in the hilly areas of southern and central Europe, where they can be found in the leaf litter and rotting tree trunks. They spend much of their lives hidden beneath rocks, in wood piles and fallen trees and branches. They feed on insects, spiders, soil invertebrates such as worms and slugs. The Fire salamander probably got it's name from the misconception they were 'born' of fire, as they would be living in rotting logs that - when placed on a burning fire - they would then crawl out of The poster is printed on matte, museum-quality paper with Giclée printing quality: • Paper thickness: 10.3 mil • Paper weight: 5.6 oz/y² (192 g/m²) • Opacity: 94% Buy a Digital Download
