Newts are majot predators of aquatic eggs. They could easily hurt some sort of frog population. I defintely do not release newts in the wild!
: Yeah true..... But what about little things like Eastern newts, fire bellied toads etc. Only way they can multiply is if someone releases a mating pair together out in the wild, and still the odds are low on the pair reproducing. I don't think a little eastern newt will kill a population of anything native here. These little things can't do to much can they? I am sure if someone dumps a caecilian out in the wild it would only last a few days. So why are these little guys illegal too?
