Salamanders & Newts

Newts and salamanders have four similarly sized legs as well as a distinct tail. They are the only vertebrates that have the ability to regenerate body parts, such as legs and tails.

Newport Aquarium has two species of salamander and one newt: the Hellbender Salamander can be found in Freshwater Falls, the Greater Siren Salamanders are in Frog Bog, and the Anderson’s Alligator Newts are in Gator Alley.
