Be careful as regards the Newts Rosina,a lot of them are protected I,m sure and therefore I dont think one is supposed to remove them from their natural habitat,if they do appear in your area then count yourself very lucky.......

I think mine must have arrived as eggs on pond plants

linclass i have read so far that it is the crested newt that is protected, havent found anything else other than that so far.

Our newts came of their own accord a couple of years ago and the pond has been there for 8 years so you may get lucky - I wouldnt think it was possible to buy wild creatures.
