Description

Unlike our earlier sightings, we are now finding the newts back in streams and waterfalls. They seem to be diurnally active now.

Description

We've found them to be common across the whole Hong Kong SAR, finding them high up wild rural mountainsides and down inside ditches next to public toilets.

They make a sound that is like a distant cow bellowing and seem to be able to tolerate pretty polluted dirty water.

Found in a storm drain, this little hatchling was less than 20cm long and very docile.
