My apologies kindred spirit, I should indeed have said amphibians and not reptiles. My bad. Slip of the fingers on the keyboard!
PS: That looks like fat one or are you expecting to be daddy soon!

Thanks Tippben and my potatoes. One of my lifes mysteries solved. Running around in short trousers on my grandparents farm and keeping my mouth closed all the time in case an eft jumped in had a long lasting effect on me, made worse by the fact that I just didn't know what this creature could be. She pronounced it as an evet, whether that is right or wrong I don't know but that is the way I remember it. I did ask a local naturalist who writes a column for the weekly paper a few years back but he could shed no light on it. Bugged me for years though.

Good link here in Wikipedia to evetes, newts & aquatic salamanders. I picked up a juvenile newt, sorry! Evet, Smile , accidently last week in a bucket when I was cleaning one of the front ponds. Lovely creature.
