Subpatched and created in Lightwave - poses well, and looks very realistic. You'd find these newts in England and much of the rest of Europe, both on land and in water. There are small control bones at the shoulder joints to give more flexibility in animation...PLEASE NOTE: the UV texture file is in the accompanying files section and needs to be downloaded separately! The LW object has bones in the 2nd layer but there is a basic rigged scene available in the support files.
I will also be making the female newt too... she's more drab but cuter!!
