Throat spots

I think this is the most likely ID but i am aware that some Smooth Newts have on occasion also had unspotted throats hence the lack of 100% certainty.

I think you can pretty

I think you can pretty confident this is a palmate newt. The smooth newts I have seen with unspotted throats have all tended to be very pale animals, unlike this. However, there is always some room for error!
