Sample text

Newts float with their legs outstretched and body slightly inflated with air. They make slow, lazy, swimming movements using their legs like oars in a two-person rowboat. To move faster they paddle using only the front legs, only the hind legs, or sometimes alternately and sometimes together. When it needs to move quickly – for example, to escape an enemy – a newt may swim by rapidly flexing its body and lashing its tail from side to side. Watching newts swim tells a great deal about what they are doing and how they behave in different situations.
