I took this photo of some creatures living in our pond, but I have no idea what they are. Iâ€™m guessing that the dead animal being eaten is a smooth newt, but what are the other two? The shrimp like beastie on the right kept his tail on the surface of the water. It looked like he was breathing through it if thatâ€™s any help to anyone.
It is illegal to sell smooth newts under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981. Another revenue stream for the farm up the swanny, never mind. 😉
