New Hampshire designated the spotted newt (Notophthalmus viridescens) as the official state amphibian in

1985 after a two-year effort by high school students. Very common in New Hampshire, the Union Leader

newspaper (April 25, 1985, p. 48) lists the spotted newt as, "the perfect symbol for ensuring ecology in New

Hampshire, as they exist predominantly in the rain and runoff sodden areas heavily affected by acid rain."
