My Eft-Up Situation


I'm worried sick about my baby newts. After a month of searching for them, they got stuck in the mail over Veterans day, so now they've been in transit for four days instead of two. They arrived this afternoon. They don't move and I can't see them breathing. I thought they were dead and started crying. But after sitting with them for about an hour, one's leg twitched. The woman in Utah who hatched them says that they might be dehydrated and not dead because their metabolisms are slow and their tucked in limbs could be a sign that they are trying to conserve moisture. So now I'm attempting to resuscitate baby newts with a saline spray, the same way you'd get IV fluids at a hospital, and waiting.
