salamanders stage tail

Newts are lizard-shaped animals with a tail in the amphibian order Caudata (or Urodela), in the superfamily Salamandroidea, which also includes the salamanders. The distinction between newts and salamanders is not always obvious since both have a tail in the larval stage and the adult stage. However, newts do not have costal grooves on the sides of their body, they are less slippery than salamanders, they have a unique dentition on the roof of the mouth, and they tend to be more aquatic than salamanders.
