Southern Marbled Newt (Triturus pygmaeus)
Also known as the pygmy marbled newt, the southern marbled newt is a species of salamander found throughout Portugal and parts of Spain. Like most newts the southern marbled newt is commonly found near rivers, marshes, temperate forests and moist areas where it hunts for insects, worms and other invertebrates. The southern marbled newt once was though to be a subspecies of the marbled newt T.marmoratus but recent molecular data suggested other wise and it is now its own species. Currently the southern marbled newt is listed as near threatened due to habitat loss.
