Newts are closely related to salamanders but undergo an extra stage of development. Newt tadpoles develop into land-dwelling juveniles called “efts.” The efts live on land for several years and then change into adults that go back to living in the water. This red eft will ultimately turn dark olive in color and grow a broad, flat tail that is good for swimming.
