Light micrograph of the shed skin of the newt Triturus sp. This genus of salamanders occupy ponds across much of Europe. Here, the shed skin of a Triturus reveals green marble-like pigment colouring which may serve a camouflage purpose among the pondweed. Triturus salamanders also develop courtship colours which differ in males and females. Magnification: x300 at 35mm size.
