Herpetological Review Volume 53, Number 1 (March 2022) is now available! Our cover features a stunning photograph of the Iberian Ribbed Newt (Pleurodeles waltl), photographed by Jari Cornelis from near Valencia, Spain. Pleurodeles waltl is the largest European species of newt and is found in the central and southern Iberian Peninsula and Morocco. Many newts can secrete toxins through the skin; however, only a few, including P. waltl, can protrude their ribs through their skin and while doing so coat their ribs in the toxins.
The issue has been posted online, is being printed, and will mail soon. Full contents are now available online to SSAR members at https://ssarherps.org/herpetological-review-pdfs/. Natural History Notes, Geographic Distribution Notes, and Book Reviews are Open Access and are available for download at the same link.
