While working today on some euonymus liners I came across this little chap. As far as I can tell it's a newt. I seem to come across them in the same damp patch in the glasshouse each year at this time. This time I had my camera...
|I didn't see it until I was clearing away weeds|
|Unlike a frog, it didn't seem bothered about escaping.|
|It looks almost snake-like (apart from the legs)|
|It looks ready to sprint away, but no.|
|Shortly after in the same batch of plants, was found this much larger one.|
|This second one was obviously more mature and much darker in colour.|
