There are two species of newts that live in Florida. The species that lives in your area is the Peninsula newt "Notophthalmus virdescens piaropicola" They inhabit almost any body of water or canal and should be abundant. The second species is the Striped newt "Notophthalmus perstriatus" however, you are not likely to see this 2nd species as it's range starts South of Gainesville and goes North up into Georgia. As to your Dumpy frog question, it's is very possible that small populations of them do exist in your area. Many people that breed frogs do it naturally out doors and will sometimes rear the tadpoles in pools or tubs. When this happens, some frogs can escape and could easily start a population. I would recommend getting yourself a good field guide. The Petersons Field Guide To Reptiles & Amphibians is a must for any field herper. One last thing, DON'T GO ALONE! You should have someone with you at all times in case of emergency! Good luck in the field.
