Caption: Great crested newt (Triturus cristata) underwater. It is named for the large crest that develops on the backs of the males in the mating season. The juveniles lack the dark-spotted orange bellies of the adults. This newt can reach 11-18 centimetres in length, feeding at night on invertebrates in and around water. It hibernates in the winter. The great crested newt is found in northern Europe, and is protected under European law.
