New Salamander

( M. Ismael/Mazen | Dp-news- sana)

Damascus, -A new type of Salamander was discovered lately in Syria which is not yet categorized internationally.
The new type was named ''Syrian Crested Newts''. It has a big crest on the back, with small dark spots and a broad white line on each side, unlike the familiar European type.

The new Salamander's abdomen is orange in color. It is 15-cm-long.

''This type of Salamander lives in swamps and pools, feeding on their insects and worms,'' says the environmental researcher Iyad Al-Salim.

He says these salamanders live for 25 years. People in western countries raise them as pets in their houses and gardens.
