-Paddletail newts are stout-bodied, smooth-skinned aquatic newts. Their heads are large and flattened, and the tails are laterally compressed, broad, and rounded at the end. They have conspicuous labial folds (overhanging lips, giving them a fish-like gape) and short stubby legs and toes. Respiration is accomplished through both lungs and skin.

The origin of Paddletail newts is China.

Water requirement: Water must be deep enough to cover the entire animal at a minimum, but based on personal observation, deeper water is recommended for better health and comfort.
