Word is, a witch would need eye of newt to make a powerful potion. Ouch. Newts could use a break, don’t you think? We only have two newt species here in Canada — the Roughskin Newt, which lives in British Columbia, and the Eastern Newt, which can be found in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Both species are happy to chow down on a variety of insects, crustaceans and zooplankton.
