Northern crested newt

This amphibian is the biggest newt that can be found in Bressanvido. Despite its quite colorful belly and the size of females, growing up to almost 20 centimeters long, the crested newt is hard to spot in the wild due to its elusive and mostly nocturnal habits. Populations of this species have been declining especially in lowland habitats; the main threat is habitat destruction through agricultural development and urban sprawl.
