Taricha torosa

Purchase at Etsy

California newts (Taricha torosa) live in coastal forests and emerge in the spring from their winter hiding places. In some areas they can be easily found as they slowly crawl to the nearest creek to breed, confident against most predation due to their extreme toxicity. When they reach the water the males' granular skin smooths out and their tail flattens for better swimming, a process which reverses itself each year when the newts return to land. They are estimated to live for 20 years.

This is an 8.5" x 5.5" greeting card. It's lovingly printed in glorious color by minimum wage copy-shop employees onto FSC certified 20% recycled Ultra Bright White cardstock from a high quality scan of my original art, then hand-folded by me.

The card is blank inside, making it usable for any occasion, especially amphibian-related events.

Includes an appropriately sized white envelope.
