About Iridotriton hechti:
Iridotriton means "rainbow newt," since it was found in the Rainbow Park area of Dinosaur.The species is named for Max Hecht, who studied Jurassic salamanders. Its lifestyle was much like that of modern salamanders. They lived in wet environments such as flood plains, splays, and channels. On land they probably would eat insects and small invertebrates while they likely ate crustaceans in the water.
