Most newts are small-between 2 and 5 inches. How do these little amphibians protect themselves from big, hungry enemies? Many newts, such as the red-spotted newt, are covered in poisonous mucus. The animals bright colors warn predators that eating the newt can be deadly. But what if an animal decides to attack anyway? If grabbed by an enemy, a newt can lose its tail and escape. Within a few weeks, the newt grows a new tail to replace the one it lost. These are just some of the fun facts that kids will learn when they enter the world of Little Newts. Vivid, full-color photos and clear, grade-appropriate text will engage emergent readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these tiny amphibians.
