Is an eastern newt a herbivore?
yes they actually are even if they have those creepy, little, sharp, teeth!
The main predator of the Eastern Newt (Red Spotted Newt) is leeches, which attach themselves to the tadpoles and adults. The efts are generally not attacked by leeches, because this is the terrestrial stage of the newt. Other occasional predators of this species are birds, mammals, fish, and other amphibians, but most are wary because of the bright spots that warn of the toxins contained in the newt's skin.
