Hi can anyone help with the ID of these please and what they will be when they grow up? I didn’t see them myself but a friend has taken some pictures. They were about 2cm long. We’ve managed to confuse ourselves and now don’t know if they are tadpoles or newts. They were seen in the Lecrin Valley in the Granada province at about 500m.
