Re Newt
Hi,

I found a dead newt in my garden shed in Elderslie?

No pond nearby ? Seems strange.

Hi John,

Sorry about the delay in replying to your recent email.

Amphibians are most active at night and if it has been raining they may leave the ponds and wander around. I have no idea why a newt would wander into a garden shed - probably by mistake at guess.

The Clyde Amphibian & Reptile Group (CARG) should have experts studying amphibians and they may be able to give a more detailed answer to your enquiry.
