Alpine Newt (Ichthyosaura alpestris)

Set of scaled top view drawings of the Alpine Newt

The alpine newt, Ichthyosaura alpestris, is a newt species that is native to continental Europe; it’s been introduced to Great Britain and New Zealand. They are dark gray to blue on the back and sides with an orange belly and throat, and the female alpine newts are duller in color. They reside mainly in forested land habitats, and the adults will migrate to puddles, ponds, lakes, or other bodies of water for breeding. Both the larvae and adults consume invertebrates, and they fall prey to dragonfly larvae, large beetles, fish, snakes, birds, and mammals.

The Alpine Newt has an overall length between 2.75”-4.72” (7-12 cm), body width of .28”-.47” (.7-1.2 cm), body height of .31”-.55” (.8-1.4 cm), and weight between .05-.23 oz (1.4-6.4 g). The typical lifespan of the Alpine Newt is between 15-30 years.
