Caption: Newt skeleton. Coloured X-ray showing the skeleton of a newt. Newts are amphibians which belong to the salamander family, Salamandridae. The adult form (seen here) of this amphibian has legs for walking on land. It can also use these paddle-like limbs in conjunction with its tail to swim. This X-ray reveals the long spines on the tail bones. There are many species of newt distributed throughout the temperate regions of the northern hemisphere. Newt larvae live in ponds and streams, before undergoing metamorphosis into the adult form. Newts feed on insects and other small invertebrates.
